In some local cinemas on Saturday they were showing a documentary film about the secret spitfire factories which sprang up during the Second World War. During the war there were German spies informing on the location of the Spitfire factories, which were then bombed by the Luftwaffe. To counter this problem the production of Spitfires was spread out across the country to miscellaneous workshops such as local garages and peoples’ sheds. These then manufactured the parts which were then shipped to an assembly area. The films used interviews from the people who used to work in these small workshops and archive film to tell this very interesting and valuable story.
Admission was £11.30.
