Voices and Pictures from Tideswell and Litton's recent past
We have identified three principal themes we will explore between 2012 and 2014:
1) Childhood now and then: recording adults and school children talking about school, home life, holidays, activities and games in Tideswell.
2) Community Celebrations through time, from Tideswell Wakes Week to VE day and Coronations to Jubilees (linking to the Queen’s Golden Jubilee in 2012).
3) Tideswell Traders through time, shoppers and shopworkers at shops, mobile shops and markets (linking to the 75th anniversary of the last cattle fair in 1937). This includes Holdsworth’s which was Swift Levick’s magnet factory during WW2. Workers are still alive and we’d like to create resources ready for the 60th anniversary of VE Day in 2015.
You will notice that we do have other stories and photographs with different headings. If you have something you want to share which doesn’t seem to fit, don’t worry, we will always include it somewhere.
