Acrise Remembered


Applicant: Acrise Parish Meeting

Project: Acrise Remembered

Grant award: £500

A significant number of local residents have 'deep' memories of their area which reach back to their school days and in some cases the time of the Second World War.  They have witnessed great social, economic and environmental changes during their life times and have an intimate understanding of the local landscape.  If it is not recorded, this testimony will soon be lost.  This project has produced a small oral history booklet containing memories and reflections relating to the parish of Acrise.  This oral history booklet is making a meaningful contribution to the understanding of the heritage of this area of the North Downs and it is hoped that it will serve as a catalyst which might lead to further community projects.
