Sharing Suffolk Stories….digitally!

We met some brilliant storytellers in 2017 during the pilot work we conducted for The Hold’s countywide ‘Activity Plan’ –  work made possible by our Heritage Lottery Fund development grant.  They shared their memories with us and with Chronicle Digital Storytelling; to say thank you, we held a special screening of their ‘digital stories’ at Quay Place on February 15th.

The stories included memories of the Waterfront, treasured family objects, and a heart-wrenching personal account of receiving a kidney transplant.  We were thrilled that ‘Waterfront Life’ attended and shared an account of the event in their March issue (pages 8 and 9 – read it here)

The stories can be viewed on Chronicle’s website at
