On Tuesday 10th June Signal took part in LoveBarrow Heritage! An event that aimed to celebrate Barrow’s extraordinary history along with stalls, talks and workshops. It was a fantastic opportunity for Barrow residents and organisations and those from further afield to come together and learn about the various projects in and around the area and learn more about those that are kindly funded by Heritage Lottery Fund. These organisations aim to engage local people in their heritage projects and the great turnout at this event really made way for new potential partnerships and possible new Heritage Lottery Applications.
Moreover, it was a great success for the Signal team; with over 100 people in the audience to hear about our past projects and watch our award winning Walney based documentary ‘The German Who Came to Tea’. It was also a fantastic chance for us to promote our brand-new community heritage project ‘Window on Walney’ funded by the People’s Health Lottery. This project aims to invite local people of all ages to become trained in creative digital media and make new connections through their story telling, recording and filmmaking.
There were some great responses on our Twitter feed on the day:
