Reading room

Share this article

I was reading the Lancing Herald about Sompting Village Hall.

I was born in Sompting and have some memories of the reading room, as it was called then. Sompting School was bombed 1942-43 and the reading room was used as classrooms.When I was about 12 years old I used to go to the reading room which was used as a youth club.

Years afterwards, in 1954, on April 3, my wedding reception was held there.

My friend and I had a double wedding.

We married brothers and our first babies were born on the same day.

Now, reaching my 80th birthday, I still have fond memories of Sompting Village Hall, which will always be remembered as the reading room.
