4 Heatons Voices

4 Heatons Voices - ‘Those 20 years’

An exciting new history project is to be launched in The Heatons in November. ‘4 Heatons Voices’ is the inspiration of the Rotary Club of Stockport Lamplighter and will be 12 months of events and activities looking at ‘Those 20 Years’ – the period between the 2 World Wars.

The project will include visual and oral histories, where those with personal memories of the period will be able to record their memories and preserve them for future generations. It is an opportunity for older people to give their own, individual accounts, rather than the ‘official’ history of those times and will help younger people in their understanding of that time, in their community.

 The project will be launched on Sunday 4th November at The Crown Inn, Heaton Mersey, with both Jazz and Ukelele Bands playing music from the era and will continue with talks, help to sort out your family archives & those of local organisations, visits to the Heritage Library, a 1920/30s fashion display, archive films of the period and much, much more.

We would like to hear from anyone with personal recollections of the period and from individuals or organisations who would like to join in.
