Sandy needs your wartime memories
PEOPLE who spent time in Portishead during World War Two are being asked to share their memories for a new book to be published later this year.
Portishead author Sandy Tebbutt is working on her latest publication, which she hopes will serve as a lasting record of the town and how people’s lives were affected during the war years.
She said: “I want to cover as many different angles as I can and would welcome any contributions from members of the public.”
Stories already detailed in the book, entitled World War Two in Portishead, include the town’s home guard based at the Manor House at Walton-in-Gordano, information about the munitions factory at Cabstand and tales of evacuees who stayed on the town’s farms.
This is the last chance for residents and former residents to have their memories included in the book, as Mrs Tebbutt wants the book published in time for Remembrance Day in November.
