Friday 8th June – 7.45pm – Memorial Hall
Based on the book War Horse, this exciting film is set against a sweeping canvas of rural England and Europe during the First World War. It begins with the remarkable friendship between a horse named Joey and a young man called Albert, who tames and trains him. When they are forcefully parted, the film follows the extraordinary journey of the horse as he moves through the war, changing and inspiring the lives of all those he meets – British cavalry, German soldiers, and a French farmer and his granddaughter – before the story reaches its emotional climax in the heart of No Man’s Land. Directed by Steven Spielberg

I don’t know whether anybody is able to help but I am trying to locate a sixty year old woman, Lesley (nee Yates), with whom I attended Lady Manners School in Bakewell. Being our sixtieth year, a school reunion has been arranged for the first weekend in July. I have only recently been contacted but, due to the passage of time being an obstacle to finding people’s whereabouts, I was asked if I could assist with locating others, one being Lesley Yates.I think Lesley lived in Great Longstone, near Bakewell, during our schooldays. I believe that she subsequently moved to Parwich after marrying a local man from the village, although I cannot recall her married name. The reason that this sticks in my mind is that I am originally a Brownson (father Wallace Brownson who married Stephanie, paternal uncle Godfrey Brownson who married Mary, paternal grandparents Wallace and Clara Brownson from Townhead and The Cottage, Nether Green) and I remember being envious that Lesley lived in the village that held some lovely childhood memories for me. In fact, I have just spent the last two hours reminiscing over photographs, tales and information on the internet.Lesley will now be around 60 years old.If you are able to help, that would be great, especially given the paucity of information that I have provided. If not, then thank you for taking the time to read this e-mail.Susan A
Update – June 22nd 2012: Lesley has been found.
