City Centre Walk with a Twist: Can you help?

The Cardiff Story Museum has funding for a project creating four historical walks in Cardiff neighbourhoods. So far Splott, Ely and Grangetown are in the pipeline. U3A has been approached to see if anyone would be interested in helping with the development of the fourth walk in the City Centre. The aim is to create something that looks at the little known history and facts of the area - perhaps a horrible histories walk looking at areas of crime and punishment for example. The walk would also have links to the collections in Cardiff Story Museum and Glamorgan Archives, and will make use of resources in local libraries too.

Participants are being offered the opportunity to gain accredited learning in digitisation skills (such as scanning old photographs and documents), which will then be uploaded with the walks onto Cardiff Story Museum’s website for people to download and use for self-guided walks. There is also 'Walking for Health' leadership training, and the chance for a training day at Glamorgan Archives to learn how to use their records and resources.

The timescale is to get the information to the designer by mid February! So if you are interested in having a new project for the first part of the New Year please let Alison Firth know as soon as possible at groups@cardiffu3a.org.uk and she will pass on your name to the Cardiff Story Museum.
