War-time Dunstable

Regretfully, Graham Bellamy has had to cancel his advertised talk about the wildlife sites of South Beds, scheduled for 7.45 in the Methodist Church Hall. As a replacement, David Underwood and John Buckledee will give a version of their schools talk about Dunstable in the Second World War. David will bring along a selection from his vast collection of militaria, including a real air-raid warning siren, and John will display a selection of photos including scenes of evacuee children, the blitz in nearby Luton and a front-page of the Gazette from the week a German aircraft machine-gunned the high street. Covid precautions prevent us from serving our usual Christmas-time hot punch. But there’ll be some mince pies and a free raffle.
