Rackheath Land Girl is latest Life Story subject 

Phyllis Wrench - a Rackheath Land Girl – is the subject of the latest Life Story biography produced by the team behind the Network Norfolk website.

PhyllisWrenchJennySeal750Phyllis’ Life Story, written by Jenny Seal, includes details of her life growing up near Norwich, war-time adventures, farming anecdotes – and even the day she saw an angel.

“I can’t say I’ve had a bad life really. Bit tight for money at times, but we got there. On the whole, I class myself as one of the luckiest people alive,” says Phyllis in the book.

Her daughter, Amanda Buck, said: “We are ever so grateful to Jenny and the Life Stories team because there is no way we’d have been able to get mum’s book written without you. You’ve done a brilliant job.”

Publisher Keith Morris said: “We specialise in writing stories that have a faith element at their core but we are more than happy to write anyone’s life story in around 7,000 words with plenty of pictures. The end result is a lovely professionally produced 40-page book for under £1000 and there are 20 copies included in the price.

“We can also write a short history of organisations, charities, ministries, churches or businesses on the same basis, if you have a story you want to celebrate or record for posterity. Or maybe a series of short stories or profiles of some of the people you have been able to work with and help move forward,” said Keith.

The Norfolk Record Office has accepted a copy of the book for their archives.
