Oral History project

Oral History project

East Boldre Parish Council is now running an exciting new project with grant funding from HCC, The Beaufort Trust 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.  

EBOH will record and transcribe memories from residents and create interpretation linking the village together forming a community thread.  Interpretation will be sited in the adopted BT kiosks in the village, as well as the School Fields Trust Hall and Village Hall. The interpretation will include QR codes which link to a sound cloud where audio recordings will be available.  A listening station will also be sited in the Village Hall, where people can put on earphones and listen to the oral history recordings.

Soundbites  of the recordings can be accessed via SoundCloud

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.
