It is seeking material for an exhibition to run from the end of May to the end of August to mark 70 years since the May 8 1945 celebrations.

It said: “We have a few photographs of local people who took part in the war bu there must be many more out there somewhere and also of local celebrations.

“We only have two photographs of street parties, both in Hampton Road, and yet there were parties in nearly every road in the area including Dorridge, Bentley Heath and other local villages.”
