Really interesting and thought provoking, first time I have seen anything like it”
Dudley Sawer reaction to garden dig, project volunteer, 2015.

We were fortunate to be supported on this project by a dedicated group of older volunteers from the local area.

Their fantastic efforts included:

  • Lots of research – hunting for clues in local libraries, museums and archives, delving into personal stories in letters and memoirs, and investigating further online.
  • Photography of our behind the scenes activities and our archive materials.
  • Setting up the touring exhibition and creating special display items.
  • Volunteering their time and knowledge at many of our summer events.

Find out more about their activities on our Behind the Scenes page.

We would like to thank them all for their hard work and dedication without which our project would not have succeeded.
