  • Hello. I hope you can help. I am possession of some dishes given to me in the 30’s or 40’s, they are exactly made for the shredded wheat, which was larger in those days, so they fitted the wheat biscuits exactly. I have 2 dishes that take 2 and 2 dishes that takes 1. I have looked through your history, but no mention of them. They appear to be a promotion, there is information on the back. I looked after them for years and I am now 83 myself. Would you like pictures of them, it may be a while as I am not good on the computer, so I will have to find someone who can help. If you would like to see them where would you like them sent to?

  • I was born in 1952 and brought up in Knella Road followed by Raymonds Plain. I have written a book based on my life which goes into great depth about life as a young child in WGC in the 1950s and 60s. It’s called ‘Blood Sweat and Beer’ and is available in all formats via Amazon.

  • I found you! It’s really moving to see the pictures and enjoy them! I was there for about four months, when my father was learning, at The Havilland, about a new plane to be bought by Aerolíneas Argentinas, the Comet 4. We stayed at a beautiful sort of cottage and motel owned by Addie and John Forsythe, a lovely couple who made me feel as if I were their grandchild. It was about 1956 or 57, I was 9 or 10 years old. I believe they were Americans or Canadiens, I’m not sure. I still keep a book Addie bought for me when we left, with her loving words on it, and also some films my father made at Welwyn. I loved the woods sorrounding the village, I’ll never forget Welwyn! I hope to return some day, and visit amazing London and Sherwood Forest and B. Shaw’s house and all the beauty of your country. Regards María Cristina
