Community Memories

“There’s no place like your own backyard”(Earlie Hudnall, Photographer)

Understanding of the past is important to help us navigate to a sustainable future. Traditions and memories make us who we are locally, and projects that identify our culture and memories can help bring people closer and create a sense of local pride.

Officers working alongside several Town Councillors will be engaging with local people and groups in Penrith to ‘kickstart’ a ‘Community Memories’ project. The aim is to capture the town’s social, cultural and economic memories using a variety of media, including: drawings, artwork, photos, oral history recordings and video.

To find out about the project and how to get involved please get in touch with the Community Engagement Officer.
