Litherland History Society recalls town's war role
by Tom Martin

THE Litherland History Society is staging an event to remember the role its town played in the Second World War.

The annual exhibition, which is open for anyone to attend, is set to take place following the success it has had in the last two years.

It will involve people sharing their memories and bringing any war memorabilia that they may have kept.

The event will be held on Saturday, September 21 at the Pavilion on Hatton Hill Road, Litherland between 10am-4pm.

Project organiser, Barbara Smith, said: “It's our third event and we want anyone interested to come along and get involved.

”We have chosen the theme ‘Litherland at War' because not a lot of people know that our town has a lot of history when it comes to the war.“

The town was heavily bombed during the years 1939-1945 because it was so close to the dock and planes targeted the factories.

”The event actually starts on Friday but we are fully booked up due to popular demand and we have school children who are coming to visit.

“But if anyone is interested they are welcome to come and get involved on the Saturday”.

If you want further details, please contact Barbara on: 0151 920 8782.
