  • News: Our Next Project

    Over the next nine months, we will be completing a planning project, hopefully in preparation for a further five-year project, called ‘Age to Age’, which will collect oral histories within the upper Calder valley.

    The planning will include meeting with people, groups and organisations both locally and beyond to set up initiatives to record personal life stories and make local voices come alive. To include others in our work we will be looking to employ people, attract volunteers, develop training and produce events that can give back to the community.

    Over the coming year, we will update our website with developing news about the ‘Age to Age’ project and how others can become involved.

  • News: May Morning Meetings

    Interviewee Glenda Gibson has donated to us information on the outdoor prayer meetings in the Colden valley in early May every year. Her father Vincent was one of those who worked hard to revive and organise the event in the 1930’s. We will enter this onto our website soon, but were wondering if anyone else out there remembers or attended the meetings and could provide us with additional information.

    The practice seems to have been an ancient one and any insight or details into the origins or practice would be of interest.

  • News: Storytelling

    As part of our plan to make oral history accessible in a variety of ways, storyteller Rachel Loise has gone through the Generations Talking transcripts and devised a thirty minute story taking small sections from many personal life stories and woven then together, using verbatim quotes, to develop a character called ‘Margaret’ in which, while in character, she portrays life in Hebden Bridge from 1920 through schooldays, work and beyond. Rachel has performed her story in local schools, elderly residential homes and community centres. An audio/visual version will soon appear on our website.
