The author of a book about Surfleet village is hoping to hear from people who may have photos dating back to the 1950s, or even the 1940s, for a new project.

Tony Blissett recounted memories in his previous book ‘An Account of Surfleet in the ‘50s’, such as how the reservoir used to draw people from far and wide to go swimming.

“It was packed,” he said. “People used to come on a Sunday and it was like Skegness.

“I am over the moon with how the first book went. I’ve sold 180 copies and they have gone all over the world.

“I’d like people to get in touch if they have any photos of Surfleet from the ‘50s for a second version of the book or for a new project.”
