75 Years of Memories at St. James’ and St. Basil’s Church

As part of the 75th Anniversary of St James and St Basil’s, the PCC thought it would be a good idea to record the memories of a generation who had been very young as the church was built and who had grown up within it’s shadow. Many of those who have recalled events and people for us were in their 70’s and 80’s and to read their tales is an insight into local history – and I hope you enjoy reading their stories.
