If you were born in Lutterworth between 1945 and 1955, then the mayor of Lutterworth wants you.

Cllr Tony Hirons is looking for as many ‘Old Lutterworthians’ born in the post-war ‘40s and ‘50s baby boom to get in touch.

Excited Tony said: “I would love to talk to people born in that key 10-year stretch from 1945-1955 and brought up in Lutterworth.

“Please come forward with your thoughts and vivid reminiscences of Lutterworth of yesteryear.”

He’s launching his one-man mission as he sets out to write a book called “Lutterworth Memories 1950-1980 – as seen through the eyes of the people who were there!”

“I’m appealing to people who lived and were educated here in Lutterworth during that time to come forward,” said Tony.

He’s urging locals to jot down a few sentences about the following:

“I hope that through this project we can preserve the memory of the brilliant small market town that Lutterworth once was.”

“Or you can write down your memories and drop them off in the Town Council office on Coventry Road, Lutterworth,” said Tony.
