You may remember some time ago that the Capture Highbridge local history site was asking for people who might be interested in an intergenerational project to come forward. Churchfield School and Somerset film were hoping to record people’s memories of growing up and going to school in Highbridge and an application was made to Heritage Lottery Fund to support it but sadly this was unsuccessful.
However, if you would still like to add your memories to the Capture Highbridge site, they would be warmly welcomed. You can read the latest addition – Janet Cann’s (nee LLewellyn) account of attending Highbridge School during the war – here.
Perhaps your memories are more recent? A neighbour recently recounted the day the winds were so strong they blew the tiles off the roof of Beechfield School, keeping children inside and worried parents waiting beyond the gates!
You can add your memories via the comments feature at the bottom of the page.
