Ampthill Past Memories – Latest

Ampthill Past Memories are pleased to announce that they now have 25 podcasts loaded and available worldwide, and more than 1500 people have already listened to at least one of the podcasts from as far away as America, Denmark, Spain and South Africa.

There are many more to be finalised and loaded and more interviews already booked.

The project continues to go from strength to strength and Ampthill Past Memories have been successful with their application to the Rookery South Community Trust Fund, and the project has been approved a grant of £1,721.00. It will enable them to buy 2 sets of equipment, laptops software, etc including an annual transcription software license for the next phase of the project.

More volunteers are now required, and the next stage is to enrol interested volunteers to check the interviews already run through the transcribing software, so that a transcript can be made available for those who wish to read the memories in this way.

Having accumulated a vast quantity of books, leaflets, articles and more about Ampthill and the locality, a suitable location is being sought, to enable storage of all this information and of course to add to it. This would enable others to access and view/research the documents etc. If anyone knows anywhere, please get in contact.

We would be very pleased to hear from anyone willing to help in whatever way they feel able. Please email
