Cheshire-born author, Julie Summers, was in Tattenhall last Friday evening to speak about her writing career and particularly 'Jambusters' on which the highly successful ITV WW II drama, 'Home Fires', has been based.
A second series has just been commissioned and filming is taking place in Cheshire this summer; the first series used locations in both Tattenhall and Bunbury.

ITV's Director of Drama, Steve November has been delighted with the audience's reaction to the series.
"We've been really pleased with how viewers have taken Home Fires to their heart," said Steve. "Through Simon's wonderfully observed scripts, and the characters he's created, we've come to know real women who kept the home fires burning throughout the Second World War. Their war effort is an intriguing aspect of our national social history and we're delighted the women will be reunited for a second series," added Steve.
