Malcolm, neighbours sharing during wartime

Getting together is important for community. It builds spirit and brings it back to what it used to be like before the War. People shared things before. My mother used to share the food parcels she got with the neighbours. And at birthdays, people used to make toffee apples and share them around because sugar was scarce.

– Malcom lives near Clapham Park and is a member of the Over 50s Club
