Memories of town’s evacuees

We had a great event for ex-pupils of the old St Patrick’s School in Heckmondwike on Friday and plan to do another in September for those who could not be there.

One of the many interesting things raised was talk of the evacuues who came to the school during the war and I would like to hear from any readers who could tell us more about evacuees who stayed in Heckmondwike during the war years.

Anyone with information can contact me at petermoreland@hotmail.com 01924 501774.
