Remembrance of times past, bringing hope to the present

To many of us, it feels as though our world has shrunk overnight. Our lives are dominated by queues, social distancing and an allotted daily hour of exercise. This is understandably causing anxiety for many people, particularly those young enough to not remember the blitz or war time rationing.

So, we’re going to bring you some stories shared by those who lived through much tougher times than we are in right now. Hopefully this will remind you just how resilient and adaptable we are in times of crisis.

If you have memories you would like to share, we’d love to hear from you. We’ll keep adding to the stories and hope you enjoy them.
