I have been able to borrow a book of press cuttings taken from local papers which I think were the "Southern Weekly News" and the "Evening Argus".  These are all from the 1920s and 30s.  Vera Sims has lent them to me and I believe they were compiled by a journalist who worked on the newspapers.

I find them fascinating in the way they give a snapshot of village life as reported by the local press.  Every time I look through them I find something new.  

Below are the months and years I have copied. The pages may take a little while to load.
