Week 11: 25 March 2019
This week a group of 12 of us had an Oral History training day provided by a representative from the Oral History Society. Thank goodness for the great catering and endless tea and coffee at Suffolk Borders Teaching Alliance Centre, because it was a full-on day with loads to take in. The group included me as the project coordinator, history teachers, people from local history societies, the film company making the Sudbury Silk Stories film and some pupils from one of the participating schools (who at times had the adults nodding silently with their inciteful questions). It was a brilliant day learning some fascinating stuff and understanding what a privilege it is to have someone share their personal history with you. Ready now to start recording stories from the people of Sudbury.
