Young at Heart organised for June Burrows, aged 88, to talk to the children of All Saints and St Richards School about her years growing up during World War II.
June brought along some photos of herself as a child and discussed rationing, bombing, air raid shelters, being evacuated, sweets and the lack of “gadgets”!
The children asked lots of questions and learnt a lot from her talk. What a privilege to hear these stories. We need to embrace the older generation. Their stories are heartfelt and real.
