Rosemary Stutchbury, who volunteers for CCNB’s adult carers group, has published a book about life during the war called ‘A collection of memories from the members of North Bucks carers’.
Rosemary had the idea for the back after two children knocked on her door looking for stories for a school project.
She said: “The book provides an opportunity for curious younger generations to have an insight into the world gone by and, for the older generations, a chance to reminisce.”
“Stories transcend generations and create connections. It is through telling our own stories that we see what we have in common. With every generation, details of the world change but the themes tend to stay the same – family, friendships, hope, fear and fun. The way you experience these things might be different as the generations pass but ultimately, our stories are universal and we must continue to tell them” [snippet taken from the introduction of the book]
The book costs £6.50 and can be purchased directly from Rosemary by calling 01280 846612. All proceeds from sales will go to Community Care North Bucks.
Thanks go to the Buckingham and Gawcott Charitable Trust for donating towards the book’s production.
