Well to say we are pleased would be an understatement. Thank you to Geoff Butter who brought along so many wonderful pieces from his collection, photographs, newsclips, video’s, stories and much much more that gave us a sense of the richness of our local history. Thirty five people attended and browsed the display, chatted to Geoff, shared their own memories, offered items to add to the archive, suggested ways that we might improve our Heritage Lottery Bid. At the same time they consumed copious amounts of tea and coffee and some absolutely gorgeous cakes made by volunteers for the event.
We gave them the results of the quiz and if you click here it will take you to the correct answers for your own reference. However, if you weren’t able to come, you could still help us if you could spare a moment. You see we need, for the bid, to get a sense of people’s current level of understanding of our heritage and then, if we are successful with the bid, we will repeat the exercise to see if that level has increased. So if you take the quick survey at the bottom of this post all you have to do is click on the number that best fits with your feeling about your knowledge of local history right now. That’s it – Simples! Thank you in anticipation and we will keep you informed as things progress.
If you are interested in getting involved, or know someone who has some documents, some stories, memories or memorabilia please tell us by adding your name to the questionnaire with a contact email or phone number and we will be in touch. If you could share this article with anyone you know that may be interested in any way, we would be very grateful.
Thank you in anticipation!
