We were lucky enough to have Mrs Cunningham come to visit us this week. She was a young child during World War II, living in Haddington, and told us all about what life was like for her growing up during the war. There were air raid shelters at her school and she didn’t like going into them as they were so dark and some of the boys in her class used to try and scare the girls!! Mrs Cunningham also told us that evacuees came from Edinburgh to Haddington, and were in her class at school. She said they were all lovely children, many staying on in Haddington and eventually marrying someone who had been in their class at school! We really appreciated her visit.
