About the photographer:
A keen amateur photographer since her teens, Carla Hodgson has sustained this enthusiasm from her first 'snap and click' film camera to digital composition and Photoshop.  Having lived in Brundall for some thirty five years, on joining the Brundall Local History Group committee in 2016 it was her idea to publish a picture book to contrast past and present features of our village.  Currently chairman of the Norwich Digital Photo Club, Carla enjoys helping new photographers and having fun experimenting with digital imaging.  She hopes this book may  inspire others to get out and about with their cameras to continue recording our ever changing environment.

About the author:
Barbara Ayers has lived in Brundall since 1979 but it was as manager of Brundall Library that she decided that material in the library relating to Brundall's history should not only be preserved but shared with the  community.  This led to the co-ordination of 'The Book of Brundall and Braydeston' in 2007 and the founding, with others, of the Brundall Local History Group.  She is Secretary of the Group and continues to research and write about Brundall's history.
