Do you have a friend or relative who is becoming increasingly forgetful? Are you living with memory loss yourself? Many of your friends, parents, grandparents and older relatives have led exceptional lives and have amazing stories to tell. Do not let their experiences be lost to history.

Volunteers will work with Sefton Library Service to run recording sessions in the comfort of a person’s home or at a local community venue.

Once recorded on audio or video, they will get a copy of their oral history, which they can share with family and friends. As their memories fade, the recordings can be re-played by family members to re-visit their recollections or to simply reminisce together.

The recordings will also be stored in the local history archive at Crosby Library, the largest of its kind in Sefton. Once in the archive, the information can be used for lots of different things, whether researching local history or doing a project at school or college.
