We’re seeking contributions from local people whose family members took part in the build-up to and military invasion of Normandy 80 years ago.

We will be creating an exhibition of local family testimonies and images that will be on show in the gallery at The Exchange, Sturminster Newton from June 6th. On June 9th, the exhibition will be formally launched alongside the author events commemorating the invasion.

If you’d like to contribute to the exhibition, please send us a short summary (500 words max) of your forbear’s experience in June 1944. If possible, please submit a typed version via email to :info@sturlitfest.com or deliver a hand-written account to the Town Council Offices in Sturminster Newton. Mark it FAO CClr Pauline Batstone – D-D 80th Anniversary Project.
