Here’s one I’m hoping I can reach out to the local community and reunite lost friends. Conner Nelson writes to me from Ibstock in Leicestershire to tell me that sadly, his grandmother is very ill, but he and his dad would like to contact friends and family from the days when they had a market stall in Brownhills.
I’ll let Connor explain:
I’m Connor Nelson, the son of Anthony Nelson.
I’m writing to inform he wishes to contact friends and family in regards to his mum, who is currently very ill.
I’m trying to find Catherine Yeomans, Robert Yeomans or any surviving family members. We used to have a stall on Brownhills Market 30+ years ago. Cathy and two of her brothers worked for us, and Dad would like to get in touch.
Thank you and kind regards
So folks, can you help? Yeomans is a familiar name locally, and it has occurred to me that there must have been a healthy community of market traders in Brownhills for years, but we’ve never actually touched on it.
I have Connor’s details: if you can help, please comment or drop me a mail on BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com. I will, of course, pass anything on.
