An Oral History of a Scottish Pit Village - UPDATE

If you want to be part of Twechar's history - talk to us!

The Twechar Oral History Project is progressing well and everyone who has taken part has told us how much they have enjoyed it. People have been a wee bit shy at first (because the interview is recorded) but once they start telling us about their childhood and what it was like growing up in Twechar, remembering their family and friends, the recorder is forgotten!

A copy of the interview will be held in the archives at East Dunbartonshire Council's Library and if they so wish, your grandchildren's, grandchildren will be able to hear you talk about your life.

We still need volunteers to do some interviewing - if you can operate the TV controls you can operate the recorder. Sue will teach you everything you need to know about interviewing and you'll have lots of fun at the training!

We also still need people who are willing to be interviewed, so please get in touch if you want to take part. If anyone no longer living in the village has particular/special memories they want to share please get in touch.
