I hope you can help me trace some people or
maybe give some more info. My mother Joyce Lee was an evacuee in the 2nd
world war she was sent to Cottingham and stayed with a family with the
surname Redsure .
My mother has now passed away but she stayed
in contact with these people for many years and we went to visit and stay
with them until they died at around the time of 1975 or maybe before. Mr
and Mrs Redsure were my godparents.
I'm now 39 and would love to know of anyone
who remembers my mum or me or anybody still related to them. I remember
playing with a girl who was my age who lived near the windmill and we used
to go to play there before it was as it is now.
I hope you can maybe just give me some info on
the war children that were sent to live in Cottingham.

There’s a bit of information
about evacuees on the website provided by David Dodd – Ronnie Witt is
mentioned (he now lives in Kettering) and also Harry Farey. I had an email
from Harry’s cousin who says Harry is now 74, alive and well and still tap
dancing at weddings!
