WH VEDay 2To celebrate the end of the war in Europe, the children from Winchmore Hill and surrounding villages, including some evacuees, were given a special tea made by the ladies in the photo on the left.  (From left to right: Mrs Smith, Mrs Bilby, Mrs major, Mrs Sears, Mrs Appleby, Mrs Brackley, Mrs Hext and Mrs Appleby – with Mr Appleby standing behind.)

See below the photo of the chidren and a key to who they were.  If anyone recognises someone for whom we haven’t a name, please do contact us.
