The Friends of Saltford Library have now published their volume of very readable and entertaining memories of the village of Saltford throughout the decades: Saltford Memories - Night Raids, Nightingales and NHS Orange Juice.
The publication was financed through a B&NES Arts Development small grant and was supported throughout by the B&NES Library Service.
The book is brimming with intriguing anecdotes and stories of a quintessentially English village. The book is currently on sale at £3 a copy through the Library Service. Why not have a look?
Open the cover and step inside to meet the chain smoking midwife with dubious beauty tips, 'Fluff' the waitress, Hetty the railway hen and hear about Miss Mitchell the stock piling shop keeper in the Second World War and the dastardly cheat who used double yolked eggs in the annual cake competition!
