In this short Digital Story, Valerie describes some of her photographs of wartime Tredworth.  The focus is often on the many gardens she knew as a child growing up in Melbourne Street during the war.  She also tells us about her mother and aunts’ war work at The Hatherley Works, clothing rationing, and about the annual Turkey Dance held at the Guildhall, where the winners took home the “very enticing” prize of a turkey.
