Gilda... writing about growing up in the East End

Dear Editor, I AM WRITING a book about childhood and how we lived in post war Britain, covering the years from 1945 to the mid 1960s. I would love to hear from anyone who would like to share their stories of being young during that time.

Dear Editor,

I AM WRITING a book about childhood and how we lived in post war Britain, covering the years from 1945 to the mid 1960s.

I would love to hear from anyone who would like to share their stories of being young during that time.

As with my previous books, everyone who replies will be acknowledged by name in the publication.

But I guarantee that any stories or memories used will be anonymous!

The areas I am interested in include family and community, housing, food, clothing, schooldays, illness, playing games indoors and outdoors, organised leisure such as cubs and Brownies, outings and so on, celebrations such as weddings and birthdays and growing up.

But any other reminiscences would, of course, be welcome. I will reply to everyone as soon as possible.
