Well its been a great start to the project. We’ve already got 50% of the volunteers we need for the research group, and a lovely varied bunch of people they are too. The research group will be treated to a series of lectures, workshops and field trips to research the Cathedral’s history. The group will then either help to carry out further research or become trained as interviewers for our very exciting oral archive.
You don’t need any previous experience or even an association with the Cathedral, all you need is a passion for local heritage. Our first meeting is on Saturday 11th February at 12.00 at The Gibberd Room at The Metropolitan Cathedral. If you’re interested in the project but still have some questions feel free to get in touch or simply come along to our first meeting to hear more. Hope to see you there.
