What did you do in the big lockdown, Grandad?

June 4, 2020

Blewbury Local History Group

Here we are again and maybe we are getting used to the situation, or maybe not! We have had few responses for our appeal last month to Grannies which was a bit disappointing. In our last history meeting, online, several people commented on various apps which have been helping villagers with shopping. There were also comments about how friendly folk are when out walking in the village. There were also lots of remarks about the peace, and the birdsong, but also comments about how pleased parents would be to have school restarting again. Will there be changes when Lockdown finishes? Let us know what you think – this period is absolutely unique and historical. (The nearest was Spanish Flu, after 1918 and much of that history has been lost or hidden.)

Next meeting is Tuesday, June 9th at 8pm by Zoom. Contacts: Mark at  markpalethorpe@talktalk.net or Audrey 850427 or audreyrosettalong@gmail.com and Roger Murphy at roger.murphy65@gmail.com
