Treat for Evacuees

Twenty-two of the Bradford schoolgirl evacuees were invited to tea provided by Mrs. W. Storey in the cafe last Monday night. They afterwards participated in various games and a sing-song. The children were accompanied by a teacher, who warmly thanked Mrs. Storey.

I didn't know that there were evacuees in Harle Syke.

I sort of did. There was an email many months ago from a chap whose mum had been an evacuee. I can't remember what he was asking/saying now :shock:
