Make Do And Mend Wartime Morning

Our wartime Make do and Mend morning with Ray Penn who was an evacuee and his wife Su whose wartime was far different in the relative quiet of the Rhonda Valley. The morning was partnered with Dorset County Council's Family Learning who brought Sherborne in wartime alive with documents from the Dorset History Centre.
