Ladies Club

I was invited to a ladies club which used to meet at the community centre, now at St David's Church Hall.

I started with intro to project and had brought photos along with me taken by the OOSC group, which we looked at and chose favourites. I had also brought some archive images to look at, and together with a brief activity to picture a favourite place you met and played with friends (not school), we had a lively debate about pretty much everything.

It was really useful to show the photos and gauge responses to them and also to debate the value of photos, archives and personal, local and global history.

A participant had also brought a photo taken of all the houses on the road to the location of the centre. You can still see the original houses on photo in blog of first workshop.

Chats led to more interviews as part of project, and also link to JOIN US Project:

Move to new centre

All moved to the new centre. Everyone still settling in really, so only had a chance to chat a bit and show the long edit of video and photos so far.
I took the chance to pop down and see the old centre, barred up and ready for demolition.

We spent the session making our own Shenley Green Centre and the area around it from junk.
