Requests Paul Dean Hooper asked on our Facebook page. “I was wondering if anyone has any information on the Campbell family from Cheslyn Hay or maybe Great Wyrley area’s. I think they worked or ran the post office at some point. This would be going back to the early sixties and even before that. Any help would be much appreciated.”
Memories of Lockdown We would love to hear your thoughts on how life has changed during these strange times. The Society could gather them together on your behalf (anonymously if you’d prefer) and add them as a chapter in our local history. Following our recent request for your memories we have received a lovely poem from Glenys Lomas reflecting on the change over the years which we will be publishing in a future newsletter. Any more memories from our members would be very welcome.
