Hayling schools to join forces for family fun day

Have your say

Helping people locate friends or family they’ve lost contact with

CHAPMAN: I am looking for my father, his name is Terry Chapman. Born November 219, 1935ish. All I know is that he had a garage called Veldar Garage on Milton Road, Southsea and his mum owned a pub called

The Pembrook in Penny Lane. Lastly, on his left hand half of his pinky is missing. I would love to know if he is still alive or has passed away.

I last spoke with him in June/July 1995 so if anyone has any information, please contact me.

MEREDITH: I am researching my family tree and was wondering if anyone knew of any people relating to the Merediths.

My nan was bought up on Hayling Island with Samuel and Martha Meredith in the 1930s and I know some of Samuel’s brothers/sisters lived somewhere in Southsea.

Whilst being bought up on Hayling Island she lived at Whitehaven Nurseries and I wondered if anyone had any information about Whitehaven Nurseries?

KIRBY, LEE: I am 22 and live in Leigh Park and I am looking to get back in touch with my brother Lee.

I did not know I had a brother until five years ago, but after meeting for the first time we drifted apart and I have no way of contacting Lee, who is now in his late 20s or early 30s and who, when I knew him, lived in either West Leigh or Leigh Park.

Our father is called David.
