There was no official history group in Hanmer and the Community Heritage project advised and supported residents of Hanmer and the surrounding area to establish Hanmer District Community Heritage group.
The group attended workshops to discover how to make stories using digital recorders. Working together with children from St Chad’s Church in Wales School Hanmer and some of the local retired residents of Glendower Place the group produced some very special stories. The children learning about the life and past times of their village by recording their older generation.
The group also purchased software through the project and the result is the production of a DVD “Lives in Hanmer” -four ladies from Glendower Place talk with children of Hanmer School illustrated by their photograph collections.
