Do you live in (or near) Seaton Road or West Street? by Zara (Member 10058518) on 8-Feb-2002
IF SO THEY WE COULD USE YOUR HELP! If you live in the area then you are more than aware of the huge ugly Bomb Shelters that are situated by the 'brookie', and you will also be more than aware of the trouble they attract. The Buildings are ugly, covered in grafitti and a hang out place for gangs of children/teenagers - who make loads of noise and upset and intimidate neighbours. The site is dangero... more >>

    Fair enough the shelters were a bit of a hang out for kids & yes they did become a bit of an eye sore, but surely the council could've cleaned them up?

    Yet again the over riding problem is with yeovil's youth still having nothing constructive to do with thier time. A town should not have to knock down buildings that saved people's lives, we shouldn't have to knock down our history because it d... more >>

Yeovil - up to 1981 by jaki (Member 10034454) on 3-Jun-2001
I grew up in yeovil - attending Milford Junior school and Bucklers Mead Comp (1974 - 79), before Yeovil 6th form college('79 - 81). Would be interested in hearing from people I knew at that time. My maiden name was Bower - now called Fairbrother.

I learned today that a school colleague died recently - Martin Welch - for those who remember him.
