DO YOU remember the Park District of Weymouth in the 1950s and 60s?

Perhaps you bought a bike from Samways, or drank at The Stag or The Ranelagh?

If so a new community project wants to hear from you.

‘If Walls Could Talk’ is a community project researching the old shops and businesses of the Park District.

Organisers need information about the area between Ranelagh Road and William Street, and from Charles Street to Crescent Street.

Led by Park District resident Amy Hopwood, the project is funded by a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund and is delivered through the registered charity Digital Works.

People are being asked to share their memories of the uses of old buildings, old photographs and how life used to be in the Park District.

A map will be recreated of the area plus an e-booklet, website and guided tours. Call 07590 827887 or contact amy_hopwood@yahoo.co.uk
