Do you have a long memory? We’d love to hear from you!
After the popular local history documentary we made last year for Heritage Open Days we are starting to make another one. This time we are hoping to make a history of the area as told by you! We are looking for residents that have lived in the area for a long time and would like to participate in a short interview, to record their memories for posterity.
Do you remember what the streets were like many years ago? Perhaps you have memories of attending EP Collier School or St Paul’s church, or going to some of the shops that are no longer there. Or did you or someone you know work for a local business such as Drews or Cox & Wyman? And if you have any old photos that you can share with us we would be particularly pleased to see them!
We hope to interview residents on camera in their gardens (with appropriate social distancing as necessary) during the summer months when the weather is warm enough to sit outside in comfort. If you prefer not to be filmed we could make an audio recording instead.
Can you help us? If you are interested please contact David at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 07890 118167.
Our first local history documentary is still available to watch at www.bell-tower.org.uk/caversham-road-documentary.
