BITS AND PIECES
 

This book, although not strictly about Brundall, was published by Brundall Local History Group and is the work of our former Chairman, Wendy Ward.  She has been a resident of Brundall for the last fifty years and has been a member of the Group since its inception.  She has been persuaded to have her book put into our Shop for sale as it is one of our publications.

Starlight motorhome

Book Four: Wendy was an avid motorhomer from 1989 till 2011 when she sold the above van to a friend.

settee which opened out to a three by six foot bed and an awning as can be seen in the photo.
