After an excellent training session at Blickling Hall, Saturday 27 July, we are now ready to begin the oral history element of our village project. We will be inviting a number of local residents, who have lived in Beachamwell most or all their lives, to a reunion in the village hall. At this meeting, we will encourage people to talk in general terms about how footpath use in the village has changed during their lifetimes. This will then be followed up with individual, recorded interviews.
