Pages From The Past

This week we’re going back 29 years to 1982 for our pages from the past.  Children from Hailesland Primary made links with a primary school in what was then the U.S.S.R.  They hoped that forming pen pals there would contribute towards a better understanding at a time when relations between the West and East were less than friendly.  You can read their story by clicking here on Sentinel pages April 1982.  Also included in this edition are

  • Concerns about high fuel bills
  • News from around the areas
  • The ongoing housing row and the Sentinel’s debate on housing
  • A report on gymnastics.
