The special history event, held at the library on Queens Road in the village, brought together those who had grown up in that era to talk about memories of work, school days and the Queen’s Coronation.

Of the 23 people swapping memories at the event, one person was 100 years old.

Library manager Jennie Hoult said: “It was a lovely afternoon and we had residents from Hethersett Hall, Woodcote Sheltered Housing and, of course, people from Hethersett and the Meltons.

“The noise level was amazing as memories were exchanged and articles and books from that era were looked over,”

Many of the memories were written down, and are to be turned into a booklet which will be given to schools and will also be available at the library.

The event was held in partnership with Family Learning.
