AGM

Following our AGM "The Yanks are coming*

Linda Scoles, a popular speaker, originally from America, Linda’s husband, Jim, was posted to Lakenheath in 1971 by the US Air Force. The whole family was excited by the prospect of living in Britain. They saw it as an adventure and an opportunity to travel in Europe. However, Linda was not quite as well prepared for the experience as she thought, despite reading all of the Catherine Cookson novels! The family had to adjust to a very different culture.
