In the summer of 2014 The Friends of West Wickham Library had the idea of collecting the Oral History of West Wickham and Hayes with the aim of recording life in the 20th century.      

Oral history involves gaining an understanding of the past by talking to people to collect memories and personal experiences. It’s a great way to find out about the everyday lives of ordinary people and can help us understand how big events have affected people on a personal level.

If you have memories of the past and would like to take part in this project, why not contact ‘The Friends’ who would be delighted to come and visit.
