“Learning lots and team building!”                                                                                                             

A Heritage and Information Training Day at Redbridge Museum with Sue Page, Penelope Stevenson, Maggie Brown, Diana Forster, Caroline Folaranmi and Joe Forster.  

On Friday 20th March, 2015 this training event took place as part of our Heritage Lottery  Project, ‘Remembered Lives’.   In the photo we are studying an early 19th Century map, where to our astonishment, we discovered that our Church was built on the site of a disused gravel pit!  

  A team of well-prepared people will
  facilitate the further research needed
  to provide fresh encounters with the
  people who gave Wanstead its character.
  
  We hope that the community identity and
  social cohesion which characterises ‘The
  Village’ will be strengthened by the
  wonderful, personal stories being
  discovered.

  Sue Page works for Redbridge Museum
  and Heritage Department and we are
  extremely
grateful for her hard work,
  thought and effort in
making the day so
  rewarding and successful.
