Youngsters needed to bring Malvern's history to life

Craig Gibbons 18th Jan, 2018

YOUNG people are being sought to help bring Malvern’s history to life.

Volunteers aged between 12 and 17 are needed to join the I See Malvern Club to create a series of podcasts focusing on fascinating aspects of the area’s past.

Sessions are being held twice a month on Wednesdays between 4pm to 5.30pm until March 28.

Venues will vary depending on where recording is taking place.

Katy Wade, learning and community engagement officer for the Route to the Hills project, said: “This is a fun way for young people to learn some new skills and help promote Malvern’s rich heritage to a much wider audience.”

The club has been created as part of the Great Malvern: Route to the Hills project which is aimed at making the most of the town’s rich historic and cultural heritage.

The project involves the creation of a heritage trail which will run from Great Malvern Railway Station, through the town and on to the hills.

It also includes a series of exhibitions, community activities and events.

The three year project is being mainly funded by a £482,800 grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund and is overseen by ten key organisations, led by Malvern Hills District Council.

Anyone interested in joining the I See Malvern Club should email katy.wade@malvernhills.gov.uk to register their interest.

No previous experience is needed as training and support will be provided.

Those taking part will learn how to write scripts, gather footage and basic editing.
