The Story Keepers
Here is Alice from The Story Keepers …
This week I got stuck into a lovely project; recording stories and memories of a very much loved holiday home that has been in the same family for over 100 years.
I have been asked to help create a book to capture and preserve 100 years of memories with stories and anecdotes shared by four generations of cousins, second cousins and many more.
One of my favourite bits so far has to be when one storyteller recalled her grandparents; the original owners.
‘They were very liberal my grandparents, they let their maids have baths. Once a week I think it was’.
Oh, how things have changed!
This project is special, not just because of the beautiful book I know that we will create but it’s also about the process. Through hearing each other’s stories and memories, and just how valued this house is by all the different users it’s actually slowly bringing the family together, and who knows, may even help it stay in the family for who knows, another 100 years?
If you have a different project that you would like to discuss, please do get in touch.
