Weston-super-Mare Reunited
  • Description
  • Related

Weston-super-Mare is a fascinating town with a long history, but no period has been more exciting, interesting or eventful as that within living memory.

Weston-super-Mare, like every place, large or small, is the product of its people. Some may become famous but the majority will only be known to family, friends and the local community. The contribution of these people to the health, wealth and happiness of the town is immense and often goes unknown and unmarked.

Weston is facing new challenges as we approach the end of the first decade of the new millennium. But one thing is certain - whatever happens to Weston, it will be achieved by the people of the town, for the people of the town.

This book celebrates the activities and achievements of the people of Weston-super-Mare over the last seventy years. Using a wide range of photographs of people, events, groups, and sports teams, nearly all of which have never been published before, it has been produced in an album style to stir memories and truly ‘reunite’ Westonians old and young, past and present.

Sharon Poole moved to Weston from Clevedon in 1971, the same year she began to work for the Museum Service. Part of her work at this time, involved compiling a photographic record of Weston and the many changes that were occurring during this period. Over the subsequent years, she became curator of the local and social history collections at North Somerset Museum. Her first book was published in 1987 and since then she has produced another thirteen books on Weston and the surrounding area. Although Sharon left the Museum Service in 2001, she continues to take an active interest in the history of Weston as a freelance speaker, writer and researcher.
