War time Ibsley
It has been a quiet village in the Avon valley from before the Domesday book, but Ibsley was very different in the 1940s. The construction of an airfield and numerous military buildings led to an invasion of displaced people from Southampton, building workers, prisoners of war, RAF personnel, lots of Americans and even land army girls. The nature of the buildings is hinted at by some of the remains now mostly grown over. Mr R. Errington will give an illustrated talk on “What Ibsley looked like in WWII” at 7:30 on Tuesday 15th November in Ibsley village hall. This is followed by the hall AGM. All are welcome, admission is free and light refreshments are provided.
