In 2013 several members of the History Group went for a walk round the villages with a view to helping them remember what and who was around when they were children. They walked and they talked of the days from 1940's onwards.
We then put their conversation with all the photographs we had of the time to compile several slide sequences pertaining to each street. Some modern pictures were used where we didn't have originals. If you look closely you will see some houses have been extended; others have been demolished and we haven't shown houses that hadn't been built back then. Other Roads - Meadow Rise, Silver Birch Drive, Eastlands and Roundlands, Hets Orchard, Greenlands, Woodfield, Violet Close and Woodbank didn't exist.
These are not professional slide shows, its not David Attenborough. The people speaking however, do have local accents and the narrated slide's proved to be of great interest to those who live in Lacey Green and Loosley Row when first produced. There is some humour and several anecdotes but the sequences are mainly for the historical content.
