 Lymm at War 

The book,” Lymm at War” was researched and written by two members of the Lymm & District Local History Society, Lynn Smith & Madge Bennion. It came about by seeing the Roll of Honour plaque in St Mary’s Church. They decided to find out more about some of the men and the roles they played in WW1/2. This is a fascinating insight into the men of Lymm with letters which were sent home detailing their preparations prior to being sent to the front. It is a well written book and is attractively priced at £7-00p & can be bought from Lymm Electric in Bridgewater Street.(Call  01925 264453  to place an order by post).
