Christmas is a time for catching up with old friends and reminiscing. If you ever visited the White Hall Outdoor Education Centre near Buxton, cast your mind back to your experiences there as you put your feet up over the holidays… If you have a tale to tell, 2019 is the chance for you to share that story with more than just friends and family.
Derbyshire’s White Hall Outdoor Education Centre is remarkable for being the first local authority run outdoor education centre in the country. It’s still going strong after nearly 70 years and has just been awarded a Heritage Lottery Fund grant to celebrate its history.
The White Hall Outdoor Education Centre – A People’s History project has just launched an appeal for people’s memories of visiting the centre over the last seven decades. Local students will turn the stories that are collected into a film, which will form part of a display that will tour around the county.
If you have a story to share, you can let the project team know by emailing email@example.com, and you can find out more about the project on Derbyshire County Council’s website.
