As mentioned in our last Newsletter, two sisters - Ella and Elizabeth - who grew up in Gateacre in the 1920s and 30s will be revisiting the area on 14th September. We shall be showing them round, and then listening to their reminiscences over coffee in mid-afternoon. Anyone who would like to come along to the discussion will be very welcome to join us.
