Guernsey Evacuees - a Memory of Saxilby.
My mother and her family, the Petits, were evacuees from Guernsey during World War 2. They were housed in Coates by Stow and then Saxilby. They attended Stow School. There were 8 children, Cyril, Donald,Olive, Mavis, Monica, Audrey, John and Mary. My mother, Monica, informs me that they were involved in putting on plays at the local hall and photos appeared in the local papers. Does anyone remember them and /or have photos?
