Of its loud life hints and echoes from the life behind steal in."
Here at GVGHH it's a busy and exciting time. We will shortly be applying for funding for our fantastic new project about the History & Heritage of the River Garw. We would love you to help us and join in with shaping and participating in the project activities that interest you.
As well as the ongoing Oral History, we are planning a range of exciting activities for the project.
This will illustrate the many historic sites each side of the river, from pigsties, to bridges to mills and more. It will also incorporate people's childhood memories of the river; things you did then, to leisure activities now, like the duck race.If you have something you would like to add to the tapestry, either come and help sew it on, or share your idea with the people sewing the tapestry.
HELP US FIND OUT WHAT THE RIVER WAS LIKE IN THE ICE AGE
We plan to arrange a series of walks by the river accompanied by experts, to help us find out how far the ice caps came down the valley in the Ice Age. We will learn how to look for signs which may tell us how the river has changed over thousands of years.
You will be able to get involved at any time, but to help our planning please tell us now if you think you would like to be involved.
Your memories are really important for the history and heritage of the valley. In 2-3 years' time, as part of the proposed new Richard Price Centre, we will have a Heritage Gallery in which to display, and share with a wider audience, the heritage of our river and river project legacy. The tapestry will be a prominent part of this display.
