Our Stories

We are recording oral histories.

We treasure the memories and stories that our residents are sharing with us. Our current project of oral history collections is broadening our knowledge of life in Forest Range and Lenswood in days past. Memories are wonderful to share and we appreciate the time and openness of our interviewees.  We are aware that memory is a personal thing. You and I might remember the same event quite differently. We therefore guide anyone listening to these stories that you are listening to memories, not viewing the results of an in-depth evidence-based historical review.

Please contact us if you or a family member would like to be interviewed.

Links to details of our interviewees, plus their recordings, can be found on our ORAL HISTORY site.  Our World War One stories can be found at THIS SITE.

      Thanks very much Rosalie. Remember if you have any photos you can send them (or scans of letters/documents) and we will add to our collection. I have seen you on our FB page so continue to look there (and on our web) for updates. Pleased that your mum is enjoying our records and photos. Kind regards.
