Heritage Lottery Funding for West Watford Multi-Cultural Community Centre's new Reminiscence Group
The Multi-Cultural Community Centre (MCCC) in West Watford has won Heritage Lottery Funding of £9,700 to set up a "Reminiscence Group".
They want to collect stories from women who migrated to Watford from the Indian sub-continent in the 1960s and 70s.
They will be asked to share their memories of travelling from their homelands and adapting to their new life in the United Kingdom; the difficulties faced when settling in a new environment, and the contributions made by them and their families to their new home country.
The aim of the project is to create material, including publications, DVDs and a website, that can help develop deeper understanding of the problems, challenges and opportunities these women, and women like them, faced.
If you would like to participate in the project, and are interested in sharing a story, contact 01923 220136, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
