An oral history of Wrangle Youth Club will be recorded for future generations thanks to a £18,300 grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF).

Discover Volunteering CIC has received the grant which it will use for a project entitled ‘Wrangle Youth Club in Living History’.

Led by Pete Read from Discover Volunteering and volunteers from the area, the project will capture and record people’s memories in living history about everyday life in and around the village.

The aim is to share and celebrate the findings using social and digital media to capture living memories before they are lost.

Pete Read said: “We are thrilled to have received the support of the Heritage Lottery Fund and look forward to inspiring a new group of young people in to researching and recording their heritage roots.”

The project will be a hands-on activity at grass roots level designed and run by young people and members of the community. Training will be provided to those who volunteer and young people will have the opportunity to learn new skills and discover more about how everyday life has changed in their village.

The project hopes to inspire a new generation of active enthusiasts in researching and recording information about their history and heritage.
