Velmore History Project

(May 2013 - March 2014)

A series of reminiscence cafes and oral history interviews with residents of the Velmore estate, which culminated in a book, Velmore: From Huts to Homes (1950s-2014), telling the story of the Velmore estate from its first days as a post-war hutted camp to a flourishing area of mixed housing.

The project was commissioned by First Wessex and the book is on sale at the Velmore Community Café priced at £4.50.

In the Spring and Summer of 2012, we worked with a group of visually impaired students at a Hampshire School, supporting them to set up and present their own radio station.
