A MyStory film uploaded by DHE Solutions. Mason Pye was born on a farm in very small local farming community, and spent his childhood helping his parents run a mixed farm of arable and livestock. During the Second World War farming in the UK was a reserved occupation which meant that workers had to stay on the farms and produce what was demanded of the war office. Mason describes his formative years up until his mid-twenties where he witnessed the effects of the war on farming and the horse giving way to mechanisation. Historical context Quernmore (pronounced "kwor-mer") is a small rural village just three miles from the City of Lancaster. With a population of a little over 500, it consists of a small number of residential properties, mostly farm houses, nestling in the bottom of a small valley. The valley has been farmed by a handful of families, many of whom have sustained this family tradition for more than three hundred years. www.mystories.eu www.dhesolutions.co.uk
A MyStory film uploaded by DHE Solutions Ltd. Born at Brettargh Holt near Kendal, Lancashire, Michael tells his story of being adopted at the age of three and a half after being transferred from Brettargh Holt to a children's home in Liverpool. Following the passing away of both his foster parents Michael began his journey to find his birth mother in his endeavour to piece together the early years of his life. His determination and reluctance to be deterred by the responses he received through the Catholic Adoption Society eventually resulted in him meeting his birth mother for the first time forty years later. From there on Michael kept in touch with his mother, through her time in a care home and for the last seven months of her life spent in hospital. Michael's is a truly heart-warming story which encapsulates the plight of a great number of adoptees who set out to track down their biological parents, a story which Michael summarises as "a wonderful story that has a happy end from a sad start". www.mystories.eu www.dhesolutions.co.uk
