Oral History project

Oral History project

East Boldre Parish Council is about to embark on an exciting new project with grant funding from HCC and NFNPA.  This will envolve collating memories and social history from East Boldre residents who were born and brought up in the village.  This research will explore how the village has changed over the years.  We will record and transcribe memories from residents, then create an interpretation trail linking the village together and forming a community thread.  The trail will run from Hatchet Pond to East End, providing fascinating social history interpretation which will be sited in the BT kiosks as well as in other village locations.  Interpretation will include QR codes which link to the Parish Council website where more extensive information and audio transcriptions will be available.

There will be plenty of oportunity for residents to get involved throughout the project, with creative roadshows and a community celebration when the project is complete.
