Dreams of My Grandfather 

Aims

Funded by Lottery Heritage Fund ‘Dreams from my Grandfather’ is an oral heritage project that seeks to create better family relationships between males. The project will engage father and son volunteers who will set out to discover, explore and record the hopes and aspirations that the grandfather of the family, and his generation, brought with them when they came to England. They will work together to retrace and record the story of the journey to England and the initial impact of settling in a new country.
