Oral History

This is a long term project for KLHS. In partnership with Bedford U3A Film Production Group we plan to film Kempstonians who have stories to tell and memories they wish to share.

‘If you can tell your own story, you can control your destiny.’

January 2014:- Memories of Kempston, latest Oral History interviews by U3A

May 2014:- Dr.Barber shares his memories of running a doctors surgery in Kempston.

We can film people in two’s or singly; with friends, neighbours or work colleagues, whatever is most comfortable.

We hope that by doing this we can give voice to ordinary folk’s life experience which will be treasured in the future.

We are happy to hear from people who would like to be included in this. We can offer car lifts to folks who have mobility difficulties.

Some of the subjects we have already discovered that people enjoy talking about are -work, school, local characters, wartime, shops and businesses, pastimes and larks.

Thanks to all who have participated so far. Thanks to Bedford U3A Film Production  Group.
