Recently years 5 and 6 at Liskeard Hillfort Primary School welcomed Dorothy Bricknell to their classroom. She spent the afternoon with them describing some of her childhood experiences and memories from seventy years ago during the Plymouth Blitz. During that time her home was destroyed and her family left the city to relocate in the countryside around Caradon Hill. The talk helped the children understand what life was like back then and how the area has changed in just seventy years!

Both the children and Dorothy really enjoyed the experience and Dorothy was most impressed by not just the children's behaviour, but their interesting questions.
