Blewbury Local History Group

January 31, 2020

Despite the fact that WW2 finished 75 years ago this year, wartime memories are still vivid, which we realised when we had a query from Canada recently about a plane crash here in 1941.

The group has a wonderful account of the crash from an evacuee who was a schoolboy here, and we would be delighted to hear from anyone else who has information about it. Maybe your parents or grandparents have recollections? History isn’t just old bones in the ground or kings and queens, fascinating as that can be, it’s also everyday life and death for all of us.

Our meetings range over all sorts of topics and visitors are always welcome.

Next meeting is Tuesday, Feb. 11th at 8pm in the History Room, Parsonage Lane.
