Dear WHT readers,
It was great to hear from so many of you regarding our recent request for outbreak of World War Two accounts.
During the process I spoke to countless numbers of fascinating people, with fantastic memories of the time, with quite remarkable stories to tell.
It was indeed a pleasure meeting some of you and hearing about that era, which was so important to so many people.
Not only this, but it was also inspiring to read the tales that people sent in via letter.
Often the anecdotes were so vivid and vast it was difficult to sum these up into a story simply about the declaration.
- 1 Omicron variant: Confirmed case in Hertfordshire says health boss Jim McManus
- 2 Suspected stabbing in Welwyn Garden City
- 3 The latest court results for Welwyn Hatfield and Potters Bar
- 4 A1(M) closed in both directions due to fallen cables
- 5 Closures lifted on A1(M) after emergency services deem road safe
- 6 Purse stolen from 74-year-old woman
- 7 Meet the authors behind a new architecture book on Welwyn and Welwyn Garden City
- 8 County lines drug runners jailed after undercover police sting
- 9 Where can you get a walk-in booster in Welwyn Hatfield this week?
- 10 What to see in the sky in December: The 'Cold Moon' and meteor showers
However I hope that the final piece somehow does the period, and people's memories, justice.
Anyway thanks for everyone who participated, even if your account didn't make the paper, due to space, it was very much appreciated.
We're in the process of uploading all the letters on to our website, so go to www.whtimes24.co.uk and take a look at what people had to say in full.
