It was a real privilege to witness Alma pointing out landmarks of the station along with her memories to Steve. It was his first visit.
In 2017 Alma, along with the late Bryan Howard, unveiled a commemorative plaque at the station marking the arrival of the evacuees. This was at an event organised by FOGS to bring together at the station the many local people with links to Lowestoft.
Alma has, over the years, visited Glossop to see family and friends. However lockdown restrictions in recent years have prevented such trips. So to be able to return this week was very special for Alma.
An informal gathering of former Lowestoft evacuees is planned at Lowestoft Station in the restored Parcels Office Community Space on June 2nd this year.
