Paddy, Hilda A-S, Hilda P, David, Eric and Tony had a nice afternoon out at Hereford Community Farm.
Please take time to read some fascinating memories from Cora, David and Hilda A-S about wartime dances and the Saturday night hop and Winnie, Rita and Muriel B talking about coping with evacuation at the start of the war in 1939, V J Day (victory In Japan) and about going out picking nuts and blackberries.
watch some new videos and hear Eric talking about his days as an RAF pilot training and flying Lancaster bombers during the war and Tom remembering his long career working as a postman in Herefordshire.

Leominster has been stitched up! The 90 restored tapestries are now hanging on 3 new red wool panels in the Priory Church and look magnificent. They were restored by a small but talented team of stitchers and include a new Lamb of God panel. Each panel measures 5 feet x 10 feet. The church is usually open from 10 – 4 every day unless a special service is booked.
