Heritage Project

Precious Memories

An exciting heritage project has been launched to celebrate the 50th anniversary of New Images Winsford Youth and Community Forum.

The centre has received a National Heritage Lottery grant of £8,500 to collect precious memories.
The project will capture the centre’s work with young people over the past 50 years.

New Images is appealing to former members, staff and any users to share their memories and photographs.

Bob Barton, from New Images, said: “The photographs will be collated and aligned with the hundreds of photos already in storage at the centre, digitised and used as a visual experience through monitors within the centre.

“The memories and photos will also be used to complete an up to date History of New Images which will be published as a book as well as being added to our website.”

A series of drop in sessions are being held for people to call into the centre on Nixon Drive.
Anyone with a connection to New Images can pop in from 7pm to 9pm on February 25, February 27, March 11, March 12 and from 2pm to 5pm on Sunday, March 17.

New Images will also be at the Wellbeing Marketplace from 11am to 2.30pm on Saturday, February 23

To share memories, donate photos or help with the delivery of the project call Bob Barton at New Images on 01606 593724 or email ofiice.wycf@gmail.com.
