We are currently working with Crookes Forum to submit a Heritage Lottery Fund application.
The application follows on from a successful memories day we facilitated for the forum in March. Over thirty people attended to share their memories of Crookes, swap stories and enjoy a pie and peas lunch. We recorded some short voxpop memories and created an AudioBoo account to publish three excerpts online. Each short clip has already have over 350 plays.
The Forum will submit the application this month to train volunteers in orla and local history, record memories and hold heritage events.
