History on Your Doorstep Project
An 18 month Heritage Lottery Funded project using The Keep resources is underway! The project aims to collect contemporary archival material of the local area around the Keep.
This spring History on Your Doorstep is offering FREE oral training to learn how to interview, edit and the ethics of oral history. You will be able to interview and be interviewed and this will contribute to a digital time line, telling the rich history of this area. The training begins on Thursday 23rd April and runs every Thursday.
We are also working with local schools to record the history of Moulsecoomb through local residents. We are holding a special interview day on Friday 8th May- working with our local secondary school Brighton Aldridge Community Academy. It’s free to join in, and all interviews will be recorded at The Keep with complimentary afternoon tea from local community café The Bridge. Transport to and from The Keep can also be provided.
If you would like to contribute, or for more information, email Lynn.Tye@eastsussex.gov.uk or telephone 01273 336506.
