'Because memories matter'

Project Alleycat wants to record memories of alley life from the 1920s to today.

We want to make small video interviews with people who lived in or knew the alleys over the last 100 years.

We want to know about families, houses, work and play – all parts of life.

We want to know about the alleys that disappeared and those that remain. Let’s remember and celebrate these unusual features of Tewkesbury life.

We will make small video talks, which will be put on Youtube for all to see and enjoy. We also want to use some of them in an exhibition we are planning for this autumn. If you are camera-shy we can do sound only.

We would like to start by visiting retirement homes, clubs or groups as this is easier to arrange than individuals, but we hope to hold walk-in sessions for the general public.

If you live, work, visit or are members of retirement homes, clubs or groups with people who knew the alleys, and want to share their memories, please get in touch. We would also like to hear from people who want to help produce video memories or take part in other Alleycat activities.
