BAKEWELL: Author’s appeal to evacuees


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
