We have been asked if we can help with research into Betty's Cafes
Harriet Griffey is working on a social history project about Betty's cafes and she is keen to talk to anyone who has worked at any branch of Betty's in the past and in particular from the time of WW2. If this applies to you or if you would like to know more about the project please contact Harriet on 07971 170101 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
