Lymington Connections...past and present!

I’m not sure yet how this section of Lymington Life is going to evolve, but to begin with we’ll be talking about connections – and especially, about some of the things going on locally which are bringing people together to admire and remember Lymington as it was in the past. Which is clearly a very popular pastime.  Eg this incredibly popular Facebook group:  Lymington - a slice of life in the 50's and 60's.
We’d also really like to unearth a local historian who’d be happy to write a regular piece for us – if you are somebody or you know somebody who might be willing to do that for us, please connect us!
