We have been fortunate to receive Heritage Lottery Funding for a great project in the community called THE SECOND WORLD WAR: THE ORAL HISTORIES OF LIFE IN WYTHENSHAWE DURING WARTIME. We will be making quite a few films and audio recordings, to capture those people that have memories of this time. We will add more information to this page very soon. Here is the dedicated website www.ww2wythenshawe.com
THESE ARE A FEW OF THE FILMS WE HAVE MADE, CAPTURING PEOPLE'S MEMORIES OF WORLD WAR 2
Our group and steering group - carry out dramatisations to further their experiences of the project...
