How many times did you say to your older relatives, 'You should write that down . . .' as they told you some particularly interesting story from their life experience? But did they do it? Now we are the 'older relatives' and unless we make the effort to record our life stories these, too, could pass into oblivion when memories fade.

Small groups provide the opportunity and encouragement to start writing your life story. We try different ways to stimulate our memories, then we write, read and discuss our work, learning a lot of social history in the process.

These stories will be very important to our families, but they also have a national significance as a first hand record of the changing times through which we have lived.
