It’s all in the summer issue - from the Hereford Milk Bar and Municipal Restaurant to Ross evacuees and Leominster’s barn builder, Frank Dale.
There’s Reuben Davis, gardener to Dinmore Manor’s inventive owner (he came up with the reflective lenses used in road cat’s eyes) on page 3; Hunderton ferry girl Jan Preedy on page 4 and Sara Tait’s granny, Annie Button on page 5 – find out how this Kings Cross, Londoner ended up in Hereford in For King and Country, page 6.
Finally Fownhope’s Margaret Chamberlain helps Terry Harris from Australia with his family research on page 7 – both their relatives were awarded bravery medals after an incident at Rotherwas in 1944.

All sales go to support the work of Herefordshire Lore.
Herefordshire Lore has been collecting, publishing and archiving people's recollections since 1989. Herefordshire Lore works to remember, celebrate and record Herefordshire's past history before it is lost with passing generations. It is run by a group of volunteers who design, plan and gain funding for projects.
A diverse range of resources have been published including the quarterly 'In Our Age' and our latest book 'A Slap of the Hand'. A related 'Teaching Pack' is also available on this web site. Our thanks go to our many contributors and funders especially the Heritage Lottery Fund.
