Wimborne In The Past
Enjoy this exclusive collection of rare archive films of Wimborne from the 1930s to the 1950s. Included is footage of wartime preparations, VE Day celebrations, land girls, market days in 1945, the Royal visit in 1937 and street scenes. 

The footage at the start of the second world war shows soldiers in the streets of Wimborne, and engineers in the area training for any eventuality. Other films, presented by local historian John Loader, show Reg Rodways's films in and around Wimborne. He was a local garage owner and very much part of the community. Colour films by Reg Day show market day in the spring of 1945. The war was nearly over and local farmers gather at the livestock market. As the narrative suggests, the war is still on but the country needs to be fed.
