Hello Everyone, I hope you're all happy and well.
I have put this message up because my granddaughter goes to Northbrook Primary School; in her year their currently doing a project on children of Leyland during ww2. I was wondering if anyone had any memories/stories of their childhoods during ww2? Also could anyone tell me about Northbrook Primary School, it's history etc. Thank you.

Good morning Noel; Thank you for your message. it's a shame you were born after 1945, I imagine you would have some great memories/stories to recall to my granddaughter. Have a lovely day.

Hello, the website posted earlier isn't actually correct. This is the one: https://northbrookpa.org/about-us/welcome

It shows that the school was opened in 1955 as Broadfield County Junior School. I was at Broadfield between 1956 and 1959. The school changed its name to Northbrook in 1999. 

Like Noel, I was born a few years after WW2 but recently read a book by a lady who grew up in the Broadfield area during WW2 detailing her experiences. I'll try to find a link to it.

Here's the book. Not the best - written I've ever read but a priceless document of the time. (It's available on Amazon as well).
