Our Stories is a local reminiscence project that had to be delayed due to Covid 19. However the project is now in full swing and proving popular with elderly people in Bolton and Wigan.
We’re collecting, listening to, learning about and recording their stories of growing up, and asking them share with us photos of their younger lives.
The stories will be shared in a ‘heritage newspaper’ which will be distributed free of charge across the community, with local families, children and young people in the area, in local schools, and on The Community & Heritage CIC website.
Everyone who takes part in the project will receive a copy of their personal recording, and Our Stories Hamper full of treats, and be invited to the Our Stories Celebration Event to mark the completion of the project.
This will be an opportunity for all the participants to meet each other and enjoy an afternoon of reminiscence, tea and cake.
