What a great week we've had, we've managed to interview 19 people for our oral archive. We've met such a range of people from Bishops to Poets and even a woman who was blessed by a Pope who then became a Saint! The research team have been amazing, the quality of the interviews are outstanding, they've managed to put our interviewees at ease to gain some really emotive and interesting memories, insights and anecdotes. I'm really looking forward to another week of interviews where we have already managed to book in another 19 interviews so far.
If you're reading this and you have a memory to share please do get in touch. We're particularly keen to hear from people who have memories of the opening ceremony, anyone who witnessed the Cathedral being built and the 1982 papal visit. Just call Esther on 07939 190389
