Oral History specialist Tracy Craggs ran our first training day for volunteers yesterday. The course was fully booked (we have a waiting list!) and a wonderfully inspiring day was enjoyed by everyone.
A morning session discussing dos and don’ts and illustrated with plenty of examples was followed by an afternoon concentrating on the Dairy Days project and included some role playing which everyone seemed to enjoy.
Participants will now be matched up with people who have offered to help with stories and memories and we hope to build up a really informative archive of digital recordings for the project.
