Overview

SADLY WE HAVE HAD TO CANCEL THIS EVENT DUE TO SPEAKER ILLNESS.

Join us for a nostalgic trip down to the sea and sand.

This talk conjures up memories of those days from the past of being at the seaside as a child.
Times of paddling, fish and chips, candy floss, watching Punch and Judy, bed and breakfast and Butlins!

A real mix of historical fact, early transport, fashion and end-of-the-pier fun.
Sheila Willis was born and grew up on the Isle of Wight, spending much of her youth exploring the beaches and coves on her own as her parents embarked on various seaside occupations.
