We have been busy meeting people and setting the project up and one exciting development we hope to build on is to include young people living on the estate who go to Providence House youth club. We will also be working with sheltered housing projects, Tenants Associations, local councillors and many more.

We are setting up various talks and workshops to explore the history of the estate and are looking for residents, particularly older residents, who will be able to spare some time to help with the project mainly through sharing their memories of the area both before and after the estate was built…
