From the Frampton Cotterell and District Local History Society:

Our nation will  mark the 75th anniversary of  Victory in Europe ( VE Day)  on Friday  8 May 2020 , to pay tribute to those who served in one of the most significant periods in our country’s history.

Frampton Cotterell and District Local History Society are  asking   local people   to kindly  share  any stories to tell about their own, or their parents and grandparents,  experiences of  living here  in those  war years.  We would appreciate  copies of photos  of memorabilia ,  artefacts,  the people , medals ,  diaries etc. Our focus  will be on the parishes of Frampton Cotterell and Coalpit Heath.

The history society intend to put together a small V E display  which  will be on view  at   the  Brockeridge Centre during May 2020.

All of the material will be collated into a folder and stored with  our archives.  If possible it would also be an amazing opportunity for us to interview local people  and hear their personal testimony,  perhaps even to record their  voices.

 If anyone has any information can they  please contact the ( underscore line between y and f)
