This Heritage Lottery Funded (HLF) project is aimed at setting up a digital archive for the village of Alrewas. My role is to project manage the process, train volunteers in oral history taking and annotation and producing a film. We are now working on the second phase of the project which will cover the period from the 1960s to the end of the 1990s. This project will finish in conjunction with the 5th Alrewas Arts Festival in August 2014.
