Many people have kindly told us their stories of growing up in Kirby. Some have done so in front of our video camera and allowed us to record them relating their memories. Others have been recorded in sound only, whilst some have given us their stories in written form. All forms are very welcome and we thank them for allowing us to capture these views of life in Kirby.

On this website, we will post the stories that we have been told by people who have given their permission for them to be published on the internet.

If you would like to write to us with your recollections of growing up in Kirby, as Norman Lally has (see link below), please contact us using the details on our home page.
