About the Author:
David Lloyd was born in Gillingham, left Gillingham School in 1964 and moved to Bristol for work in the public sector and later banking. He returned to Gillingham in 1988. He is a long-time member of Gillingham Local History Society of which he is now Chairman. David’s book Around Gillingham in the Images of England series (HP) was published in 1998 with a pocket edition reprint in 2006. Researching his family tree David has found that his family goes back at least 250 years in the Gillingham area so he feels able to claim himself a ‘local’. Because of his interest in local and family history, as well as being a keen photographer, he has built up a collection of old postcards and photographs which will be used in the new book together with photographs taken by himself, and additional material from friends and Gillingham Museum. David produces regular newsletters for the Local History Society, Gillingham Town Twinning and Gillingham Rotary. He lives in Gillingham, Dorset.
