Capturing stories - free training in oral history

Published: 01/03/2023

Welsh_stamp_colour_JPEG.jpg‘Off Flint’ – Celebrating our town, castle and coast is an exciting project to involve local people in recording, conserving and celebrating the rich heritage of Flint town, castle and coast. 

We need volunteers to help gather the wealth of stories about Flint and so are holding two free training sessions in Flint Library on Thursday 16 and Thursday 23 March from 10am – 12 noon.

The sessions will look at what oral history is and why it’s important, before practising interview techniques and using the equipment. Both sessions will be very informal and hands on!

Stories, photos and artefacts gathered during the ‘Off Flint’ project will form the basis of a new community archive in Flint Library so that the information gathered is widely accessible to everyone.

‘Off Flint’ is led by Flintshire County Council and, thanks to the National Lottery players, has received £54,200 funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund. 

Places are limited and so booking is essential, please contact Jo Danson, Community Heritage Officer, on 01352 703042 or
