Local history: 'By Friday, the money had run out'
This month we begin our serialisation of Memories of a Bristol Boyhood by Knowle resident John Fletcher. His evocative stories cover the pre and post war years and are sure to strike a chord with many of our readers. John's book was originally written for his great-niece who lives in Australia and sales of the book have raised money for Children's Hospice South West. We begin in the early 1930s when John was born - and things initially did not go well!
