The Sopwell Memories website is now live!

We are pleased to announce that we have at last launched the Sopwell Memories website:

To celebrate this, there will be a free exhibition, which we have curated, of the story behind the website to be held in the Museum of St Albans, Hatfield Road, from 1-31 August 2014. Do come along to see it!

Many residents and past residents have contributed their memories in the form of oral history recordings and photographs and to date over 40 people have been interviewed resulting in 137 posts. The website is interactive, so you may add your own comments and memories.

Project Manager, Sandy Norman, says: “It has been really enlightening talking to past and present residents about their memories. These would be lost to future generations if we had not decided to preserve and celebrate them. Their stories and photographs will be an invaluable resource for education institutions and social historians as well as the general public.”

Please look at the website and if possible, drop in to see the exhibition.
