About the Project
A Community Project: How can you get involved?
This project is community-driven and inclusive with the opportunity for any interested person to contribute to the outcomes. The charity welcomes the help and support of volunteers to engage in archival research in areas such as military history, education, fisheries, health, public services, entertainment and sport in the local area. This archive is of national importance because it will evidence Britain’s rich and diverse history. The project will also be of social and educational value and serve as direct support to the GCSE History curriculum.
We also welcome contact from anyone of African descent (African, Caribbean, American) who were living in the area before 2007 in order that we can collect contemporary oral recordings of stories for future generations.
If you can help with our research we would love to hear from you! You can contact us with information, images, ideas, suggestions and offers of help by going to the website for more details. Thank you.
