Here is a picture from the just before the war...perhaps 1939, when Daphne, my mother, was a nanny in the south of England. As the threat of an invasion was close they moved the family inland away from the coast. It was after this that my mother enlisted in the R.A.F. and was posted in a hospital in Newcastle. It must have been chaotic times indeed for a family that was used to living the quiet village life.
These experiences must have shaped Daphne's character and is evident in her dedication to the community of Little Mountain.
With the theme 'history of place' Artist in Residence Lisa g and Artist Intern Lisa W work with the community collecting personal stories.
These stories will be shared here in the form of text, photographs and videos.
