by Sylvia Olliver
A portrait of life in neighbouring West Sussex towns from the 1930s to the 1960s.

Extensively illustrated with photos and postcards from the author’s own collection, this personal account contains a wealth of information that could prove valuable to historians and researchers along with anyone with a general interest in the local history of West Sussex and the South Coast of England and in particular the development of Bognor Regis and Chichester during the latter half of the 20th century.

In this entertaining and nostalgic memoir, Sylvia Olliver recalls her childhood during the Second World War and the years that followed, recalling the many changes which took place in her home town of Bognor Regis and the neighbouring city of Chichester during that time.

Born in Bognor Regis, Sylvia Olliver lived in the town all her life (except for a short period during the war when she was evacuated to Yorkshire) and was a well-known local figure. She was a councillor for Bersted  Parish Council , Bognor Town Council and Arun District Council over the years. She was Mayor of Bognor three times and Deputy Mayor three times.
