People who have lived and worked in Dorset are being sought to come forward and share their memories for a special project.

Organisers of Dorset’s Living Memories are urgently seeking volunteers and participants for the launch of the project on Wednesday, April 1.

The aim of the project is to give older people in Dorset an opportunity to share their memories, stories and experiences of everyday living in the county from the beginning of the 20th century to the present day.

People will also be invited to submit their own photographs, making this one of the most comprehensive record of the recent history of the county.

Anyone who would be interested in becoming a Volunteer Researcher, Project Promoter, Web Editor or a Project Assistant would also be very welcome.

The event will start at 2.15pm at the Age Concern centre, Dorchester.
