BAKEWELL: Author’s appeal to evacuees

Have your say


Local playwright and actor Sharon Holland Taylor, needs volunteers to tell her their tales of evacuation. Can you help?

She is collecting memories of local experiences for a project involving Peak Rail. Ideally she would like to hear if you or someone you know was evacuated to Bakewell and surrounding areas from Yorkshire. Was it a happy experience? What do you remember about the families you lived with? Did you eventually make Derbyshire your home?

If you can help please contact Sandra on (01629) 812388 or
