South Gloucestershire Second World War stories

South Gloucestershire Second World War Stories project

We are delighted to have been awarded funding by the Heritage Lottery Fund for our South Gloucestershire Second World War Stories project. Made possible by money raised by National Lottery players, the project aims to explore the impact of the Second World War in South Gloucestershire. We want to share your stories about what it was like to grow up, live and work in South Gloucestershire during or in the aftermath of the war.
