Calling all would-be local historians…we know you are out there! How would you like to contribute to the creation of a new archive for future generations whilst receiving training by expert historians? The Keep, Sussex’s fabulous new local history archive, is about to launch a Heritage Project offering just that.
History on Your Doorstep is a project which aims to celebrate and collect the heritage of Moulsecoomb, Coldean and Bevendean for the benefit of current and future residents.
The project will last until summer 2015 and sessions will be held once every month at various community venues and The Keep. You will be able to learn some great skills – like using recording equipment and storing documents at The Keep archive – and all session are free.
The first session looks at the geography of the area using map resources, and we’ll also be joined by a leading historian, Dr Geoffery Mead. This session is at Moulsecoomb Primary School on Tuesday 24th June 5:30pm-7:30pm. It’s open to all and there will be free refreshments.
If you are interested in taking part or just want some more information, The Keep’s Lynn Tye will be at Coldean Library on Thursday 22nd May 3-6 pm and Saturday 24th May 11am -1pm to sign you up and answer any questions.
Any questions, please contact Coldean Library on 01273 296902, or Lynn Tye on 01273 336506
