We would like to encourage members of the community who are interested, to be involved with our project which is to record happenings in the Sidney Sussex Ward both past and present.
This could be by a written record, a photograph or a video and for those interested in research we have various equipment and are happy to teach people how they can be used.
The area has a huge amount of history to consider and of course there are new events that occur every month. So, we seek volunteers, both young and old who wish to be involved with their heritage, at times to suit them.
For those who have historical knowledge but perhaps are not physically able to assist , we are happy to arrange a home visit to listen and perhaps record their memories. These might, for example, be wartime memories of the area, memories of their schooldays, or of an interesting character that once lived in the neighborhood. It could be memories of shops long gone, celebrations, parades , church events or local parks. Everything is of interest.
For those who are interested in a more active participation please ring 01472 312 739 for further information. For younger people we need volunteer interviewers, film makers, photographers, administrators and anyone willing to learn.
In return we promise interesting work which could be for a few hours now and again, or more regular volunteering, to learn valuable heritage and employability skills.
For older volunteers we offer for you to become an administrator of this website, adding articles, photographs and events.
We look forward to hearing from you!
