ACE (Action in Pathways to the 15 young people will create a heritage trail across Caerau Iron Age hillfort in Cardiff in an intense one month project. The site is adjacent
to impoverished estates and presents significant intellectual barriers to many inhabitants and is also vulnerable to anti social behaviour.
Local people will be reconnected with this site with a view to reducing negative bahaviour and raising understanding of the heritage. Young people will be taken to a reconstructeded settlement to learn about Iron Age life before appying their new knowledge at Caerau to understand this site. The heritage trail will link the housing estate with the hillfort. The project will be celeberated with a one day Iron Age festival at the hillfort. Particpants will record their work digitally for inclusion on the applicant's website and work with professionals from the National Museum of Wales, Cardiff Council and Cardiff University. This well planned project helps tackle pressing social and heritage needs and is considered a high priority.
A one year project to preserve and share the heritage, personal stories and folklore of Evanstown and Gilfach Goch. Working with
Evanstown and members of the local community, youth groups and local schools they aim to strengthen the groups relationship with young people. Two
intergenerational digital recording workshops will help to educate older volunteers in the use of digital equipment and encourage young
people to learn more about their local history. The project will digitise the groups collection of photographs and stories into an online library that will be used as a shared resource, creating digital stories that will be available online and produce (750, A5) printed booklets connected with QR codes. Copies of the booklet will be distributed to Schools, members of the Community and participants. The celebration event will promote the booklet, showcase the digital recordings, exhibit the historic photographs and stories. There will be permanent exhibitions of the booklet at both Community Centres. The project is considered medium priority for support.
Bagillt Heritage A one year project to develop an industrial heritage walking trail around the sites of historic buildings, factories and docks in the area. The High
industrial heritage will be researched in local archives and libraries by a group of volunteers, along with using records kept by the public,
Industrial Walk and plaques put up along the trail to tell the story of each site. The material will also be available on the society's website linked to QR
codes along the trail. A number of public presentations are planned for the local schools and community, along with a public opening to raise awareness of the trail. The accessibility of the trail to the public and the information available on both the plaques and the website has the potential to benefit a wide range of people.The heritage focus of the project is well defined and the development of the trail itself detailed and well planned. The trail is an innovative way of sharing the heritage of the area and will provide a sustainable activity for both visitors and the local community. The project is therefore considered a high priority.
A group of SCCCC members will explore the experiences of first-generation Chinese immigrants to Swansea by visiting the Glamorgan

A one year project that will see at least 10 volunteers investigate the community history of Swansea, to produce a digital archive out of
town and city in thousands of donated photographs, and preserve the memories of local people through audio recordings - to tell the story of Swansea,
from it's destruction during the Blitz, through it's re-building in the 1950's, to becoming a city in 1969 - and the 'City by the Sea' that it is today. Volunteers will be trained in interviewing, audio recording, and image scanning. Educational packs will be created for volunteers schools visits, and the project will culminate in an exhibition. The project will be well advertised re engaging volunteers, costs are realistic, and the applicant group is supported by the People's Collection. It is therefore considered a high priority.
Raglan and District Local History Group will work with RCAHMW, National Library of Wales, Science Museum (London), local community
centre, local churches, Raglan Primary School, the local Rotary Club and local WI branches to research the history of Raglan and the
surrounding area focusing on three themes: Raglan Ancestors; Life and Loss in World War II and celebrations honouring Queen Elizabeth II's reign. Participants will receive training in archive research and oral history.

This will enable the group to produce a wikipedia-based website, walking trails with QR codes, display panels, school learning packs, booklets and leaflets. These outputs will be launched at celebratory events, for example each village will hold a history trail walk using their QR code walking leaflet and a special school assembly held. The project meets the AOS aims providing a cross section of the community with a wide range of opportunities to learn about their local heritage, and share and celebrate this learning through a good mix of traditional and new media. This is a high
Treuddyn Urdd The project will work with Treuddyn residents of all ages to gather stories and share memories of The Urdd on its 90th anniversary and to
look at how a child's life in the village has changed over time. Treuddyn was the first 'Urdd Adran' to be established and reminiscence
sessions will be held where three local schools will interview and record older members of the community. Oral history training will be provided for members of the secondary school involved. Edited extracts of these memories will be placed on the village, People's Collection Wales and the Urdd's websites and photographs will be used to create a visual timeline for the Village Hall foyer. Both memories and photographs will be collected into one book that will be distributed to every household in the village as well as multiple copies for the school. An event will be held in the Village Hall, unveiling the exhibition and launching the book. Costs are appropriate and they have secured £3,650 in partnership funding. The project will enable different generations to work together whilst engaging the whole village in exploring and documenting the Urdd's heritage within Treuddyn. Overall a high priority for support.
Ysgol Maesydderwen History Club, an extra-curricular club, will work in partnership with the South Wales Coalfield Collection, the Richard High
Burton Archive and South Wales Miners' Library at Swansea University, Big Pit, Glamorgan Archives and a local heritage society to
explore the mining heritage of Ystradgynlais, Ystalyfera and Abercrave. Up to 50 young people plus older community members will visit
Upper Swansea national and regional museums and archives to receive training in archival research, collection handling, oral history, digitising Valley in the
photographic archives and on-line management of historical research. Not only will they research the mining heritage of the area including
the Ynyscedwyn disaster of 1892 but they will investigate the social, cultural, educational and religious life of the area such as the
establishment of the miners' welfare hall, Temperance Choir, Cymanfa Gamu and local eisteddfodau and the vital, yet often overlooked
role played by women in mining commnunities. This research will be digitally recordd and uploaded to the school's website and the NGFL Cymru website. The project will culminate in the production of a play written and performed by the young people and the local community with support from a local, professional theatre company (Mess Up the Mess). The production also will be recorded and uploaded to YouTube and a DVD deposited
THS aim to create an animated film to explore the town connection with Daniel James (Gwyrosydd) - the poet and author of the Welsh
hymn, Calon Lân. Participants will visit sites around South Wales of relevance to the poet's life as well as research trips to local archives.
Children from 3 local schools will take part in animation workshops which will ensure that the heritage learning is widely shared. The film will be made available online and widely distributed to local schools, libraries and museums. The project will culminate in a 'premier' screening in the local chapel (where Daniel James is buried). Costs are reasonable and offer good value for money in view of the quality of the project output and the opportunities for direct involvement in heritage learning. Overall, a high priority for support.
Blaenau Gwent Chartist and Historical Society will create an opportunity for people to learn more about Blaenau Gwent's Chartist's
Blaenau Gwent association and history. Volunteers and participants will visit localsire which have associations with the chartist movement and learn about
Zephaniah Williams, the Blaenau Gwent Chartist leader. This history will be shared through the creation of a new heritage trail, booklet,
audio CD and DVD. Content will also be shared on the society website. Costs are reasonable and the project offers consdierable
opportunities for volunteers and participants to learn about heritage. Considered a high priority for support.
A six month project to research, restore and archive existing sound recordings and films of people's memories of WWII. The group will
also interview survivors of the Royal Artillery regiment in Llandudno to build on the existing audio heritage and create an online guide
where they can all be accessed. The group will visit local attractions such as the Llandudno Great Orme WWII Artillery School Gun Site,
Llandudno Home Front Experience and The Penmaenmawr New York Cottages in order to further their knowledge on the subject and interview subject specialists. They will share their heritage learning through an online guide of the recordings and films collected and created during the project. This will hopefully be developed into an app. Presentations will be given at events, in schools and older people's homes. The heritage focus is strong and seemingly relevant to the area's heritage. The proposal for an online collection of recordings and films presents an innovative approach to a well covered topic and will create a sustainable archive of memories from the period. The project is therefore considered a high priority.
Living along the A one year project which will encourage villages along the Pontycysllte canal (between Llangollen and Chirk) to recognise their common
histories and share them with each other and the wider public by creating exhibitions / interpretation material, podcasts and video slide
shows, with material availalble on a new website. As well as a series of guided walks, memories, photos and objects will be gathered at
Show and Tell events. Around 50 volunteers will be involved, as well as wider community members as participants. Volunteers will be provided with training in using hand held recorders amd editing. Young people will be trained in producing digital outputs. The group will work with heritage experts and People's Collection Wales. Heritage Open Days will be held towards the end of the project to join up the village exhibitions in a trail along the canal, launch the web content and present participants with CD's / DVD's. The project offers good value for money, is well planned with a clear heritage theme and is therefore considered a high priority for support.
NT will arrange for 68 people to undertake walking tours to redundant hydros in North Wales over two dates to see them in situ and gain a High
better understanding of how the technology worked. Descendents of some of the original innovators will be interviewed to collect and
Hydros of North preserve their stories. The project will benefit from a blog, interactive online map and photodatabase to share the interviews, photographs
and experiences of the participants. An exhibition and presentation will be held at the Dinorwic Pump storage hydro in Llanberis to celebrate the project with schools and the community. Although the heritage focus is well defined and activities well researched, it is not clear who the participants will be.
Interpreting the A one year project to research, collect and collate information on the history of important buildings such as churches, schools and farms,
and their impact on the Deganwy area. Members of HDG will visit a number of local landmarks including Deganwy Castle, Deganwy Dock
and Marl Hall and Estate to explore their significance to the area. The group will also visit Flintshire Archives, Conwy Archives and the Thomas Prys Collection in Anglesey to carry out research on the particular heritage areas. HDG intend to record people's memories of life in Deganwy, encouraging public participation in the project. Exhibitions will also be held, free of charge to the public, at the Welsh Government building in Llandudno Junction and at annual events locally. Guided walks based on the information uncovered will be arranged for both residents and visitors and leaflets prepared.The project has a strong heritage focus and is well planned, proposing research which would contribute to an overview of Deagnwy's history. On balance the project is considered a medium priority for funding.
A year long project to produce films in both English and Welsh covering the social history of Brynaman, local events such as carnivals,
Bounces Back / eisteddfods and the lost traditions. In order to digitalise their collection which includes photographs, vhs and cine films, participants will
visit the National Library of Wales for guidance on preservation and editing as well obtaining additional images and clips from the Library.
Participants wil visit people in their homes to copy old photgraphs as well as record oral histories. They will then run workshops to enable
volunteers to produce the films by marrying the spoken word to sillent cine film in order to bring the past alive. A well publicised celebration evening to thank participants will show some of the films and there will be a display of photgraphs showing the various stages of the project. Overall the project is considered a medium priority.
A project that will promote the importance of past village life to the residents, children and people outside of the village of Bryn in Neath
Country Needs Port Talbot Borough. The presence of the type of coal mined in the area made it a prosperous place and played a major part in the
industrial revolution. The projects aim is to catalogue these events to provide a lasting record of the history of the village and its people and to encourage young people to learn about the history of the place in which they live. Visits are included as part of the project and children from the primary school will be invited to take part in the presentation of the information and local dignitaries will be invited to help celebrate the event.
Groundwork North Wales are seeking support for a project that aims to investigate the history of the Plas Power Colliery site at New
Broughton, Wrexham. There are substantial physical remains of the Colliery including the power house, two winding engine houses and a
row of stone built offices and workshops. The colliery combines a rich local history with substantial built reminders of both its existence and the railway that served it, and the changed landscape caused by the mining spoil. The project will produce a guided walk of the site, a resource packs for teaching local history to school groups, web based material and information pack for local libraries and societies. The participants will visit former colliery sites around Wrexham including Bersham, Vron and Hafod. Trips are also planned to Big Pit and the V & A to learn more about the country's mining history. Wrexham County Borough Museum and Archives, North Wales Miners Assoication Trust, the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historic Monuments of Wales, Cadw and the National Archive will be consulted.
An 8 month project involving young people's and adult writing groups to research the River Tawe and use this work to inspire a series of
short dialogues or monalogues. These will be recorded by actors and made available via QIR codes at points along cycle paths and
bridges over the Tawe. Supported by historians, a writer and drama workshop leader participants will visit local sites and interpret them
through creative writing. Material from the National Waterfront Museum, and local heritage organisations will be used for the imaginative creation of characters to develop thematic issues based links between past and present. The project is well planned and offers new perspectives for interpreting the heritage. However, participation appears to be restricted to groups the applicant already works with. On balance the project is considered a medium priority.
The CoStar Partnership, in Torfaen, are seeking an award to research the history of the Greenmeadow estate which was constructed
during the 1960s as part of the development of Cwmbran. In particular, the applicant wants to investigate the history of the local community Geog
hall, chapel and shops. It is hope that through the project, local people will gain a greater sense of identify and understanding of their heritage. Participants will use maps, documents, newspapers held by libraries and the local authority to build up a memory board, through workshop sessions, so that they can trace the history of the area. The project will also purchase 4 laptop computers to help record and research material. A week of celebrations are planned at the end of the project to recognise the achievements of the participants and to disseminate the findings to the wider community. This will culminate in a celebration evening in the local community hall with period costumes, music and food.
The PCC is requesting a grant to explore the changing role of the church in the communities it has served over the last 150 years. The
Anniversary of project is timed to coincide with the 150th anniversary of the church in November 2012. Participants will use local history sections of local
libraries to examine census information and to research newspaper archives to search for articles relating to the church. The bulk of project activity centres around plans to formalise and partly digitise a vast collection of church memorabilia owned by a local historian as a means of opening up this resource for future public benefit. Costs are reasonable and primarily revolve around the purchase of equipment to digitise the collection of church memorabilia. The heritage focus of the project is good but it is not clear whether participation will be extended beyond the existing group. In addition, the exploratory activity proposed lacks relevance to the heritage focus in that it focuses more on the history of the church itself rather than the role of the church in the community. Overall, a medium priority for support.
Llanhilleth Institute stands as a proud memorial to the powerful coal-mining industry of the Ebbw Fach Valley and to those who mined it.
The aim of this project is to engage with local people and record people's memories of the building and the stories associated with it. The Geog
project will also collect and digitise photograph's and newspaper articles and exhibit these throughout the building. If succesful, the
applicant would purchase an interactive 'coffee table' and load it with digital stories, original film and other archive material. The project is considered a medium priority for support.
Three primary schools in Powys will come together to create a digital map of the Tanant Valley landscape to include its hillforts, Neolithic
Cynhanesyddol stone rows, Bronze Age funerary and Roman mining. The children will use online resources to explore archaeological remains with the
Dyffryn Tenant assistance of Clwyd Powys Archaeological Trust and a digital artist, learning about current understanding of the sites. They will also create
a website to host an illuminated interactive map of the valley, presenting what they have discovered along a timeline. The site will be launched at a community ceremony.As few activiites are proposed to share the heritage, it scores a medium priority.
A nine month project to produce a bilingual book reflecting the history, landscape, literature and stories of Mynydd Bach in central
Ceredigion. Organisation members wil research the area’s history at the National Library of Wales and use photographs from their
archives to trigger memories at reminiscence sessions. There will be a book launch in the community which may include people
reminiscing and a display of photographs, pamphlets and artefacts that could not be included in the book. A future website will also

There will be a celebration evening in the village where the DVD will be launched with an exhibition of still photgraphs . Additional celebration session will take place at the school. with a prize giving ceremony for the children. The scope of work is quite broad and lacks focus, therefore the project is considered a medium priority.
A 4 month intergenerational community history project to capture people’s memories of the historically significant border vil age of Talwrn M/M
Green near Wrexham. Photographs and stories will be brought together in a new oral archive and recorded on DVD which will be viewed
History Project in a free community cinema viewing and through talks and the school and community news letter. It is hoped the stories will be a vital
resource for those interested in the history of the area and as expressions of value, sense of belonging an identity. The applicant is recently established and this is their first project. Unfortunately it does not appear well planned and costs do not appear to be fully comprehensive. On balance this application is considered a medium priority.
Mount Community Association in Milford Haven are seeking an award to investigate the history of their local community woodland. The
project will see young people and older tenants record a local history related to the woodland producing video diaries and a booklet.
Working with communities in the Castle Pill area the project aims to capture information and stories related to the nearby woodland. Participants will also visit Milford Museum, Milford Haven Port Authority, Milford Dock Company and the local Town Hall to help them better understand their local heritage. As part of the project, an exhibition will be created along with a short digital film and a booklet documenting the material collected. The project will culminate in a launch event and celebration in a local theatre.
In this one year project participants will examine the development of post war Swansea, create a digital archive and website out of a
‘legacy collection’ of negatives, and celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the applicant group with an exhibition. Whilst the applicant has a
strong membership, and has identified it's partners for this project, most of the planned activities appear aimed at existing society members, with little information on who - or how many outside of the group/ or other historical groups will benefit from the project in a significant way. The training element is also unclear - although included in the project plan, the activities the training would relate to are described as needing to be 'outsourced' in the application documents. It is therefore considered a medium priority.
Welsh Heritage WEA proposes a 13 month project to enable four groups of learners from within the WEA to explore the history of the organisation itself.
and the role of Groups from Cardiff, Newport, Swansea and Merthyr will visit the Glamorgan Archives to learn how to research their local history, as well
as interviewing older members of the organisation to capture their experience as learners and tutors. Skills gained will include scanning
and editing images and uploading them to the web as well as making digital stories. Sharing proposals include involving other WEA members and the general public through events and a lecture, screening and presenting the project findings. The project lacks a clear heritage focus and is considered medium priority.
Llansamlet Historical Society (LHS) is requesting £6,200 to record people's memories of Llansamlet's rich industrial, religious, social and
sporting heritage and to catalogue the organisation's extensive collection of photographs.The organisation has an extensive but un-
catalogued collection of local photographs which they propose to digitise. Archival research will enable the group to provide background information on the photographs. Once catalogued, the collection will be deposited with the West Glamorgan Archive Service. An open day will be held at the local community centre to encourage members of the local community to contribute their memories and a CD made for local distribution. Costs are appropriate and the project is a reasonable fit with the aims of the AOS programme. However, the heritage focus is a little weak and the proposals for sharing of heritage learning would have benefitted from additional development as they are currently rather generic. Overall, a medium priority for support.
A ten month project to produce six heritage trails, family stories through video interpretation, leaflets and a facebook page focussing on life M/M
in the Neath Port Talbot area from 1850-1900 when major industrialisation took place. Six local history societies will work with the county
archives to create a typical family census record from the period. This will then be used as a basis for six heritage trails which will display
interpretation boards; QR codes will be utilised to link to videos, where actors will play out scenes of the family stories. The videos will be available online for those who do not have access to smart phones and will include subtitles to ensure they are accessible to all.
1911 The Great This project aims to research and present the history of the industrial unrest that was around the Swansea valleys in 1911 to the local
community. The group are planning visits to The Richard Burton Archives at Swansea University and the Libraries of both Swansea and
Cardiff to research and examine industrial records, photographs and trade union meeting documents. The material gathered will be used
to create a booklet, website and display material. The display will be used to give presentations to local groups. Interviews will be
conducted with members from the local community to create an oral history resource. Guided walks will be held for the community showing the geographical areas, including docks and railways that are connected with the Unrest in 1911. Whilst the heritage focus is quite strong, the participation element is quite weak as it is unclear how involved others beyond the group will be with the research elements of the
e year project to develop a living history archive covering the recent industrial past of Pontardawe in the upper Swansea valley.
Through cross generational working it is hoped to collect a range of oral and documentary records and to deposit orignal material in the
Glamorgan Archves which will provide support to the project. Other partners inlude Swansea University History Department and Swansea
museum service. The archive will be digitised and placed on a website while other outputs will include a book of old photographs and a small touring exhibition of work. Costs appear reasonable. Active participation appears to be restricted to history society members while the scope of work is broad and lacks focus. On balance the project is considered a medium priority.
Llanteg Local Llanteg Picture The project will enable participants to investigate the history of Llanteg Village and it's people from 1950 to the present day, with a view to
producing the second volume of a book of pictures and reminiscences of it’s inhabitants; also to reprint the first volume, and create a
Village Time Capsule with local school children. The applicant society's members are experienced in carrying out this kind of a project, about which local people will be well informed; however, there is little in the way of exploratory activity; there are no numerical details/ aims e.g. in terms of volunteers to be engaged, or families to be included in the book; and aside from the school children, it is not clear that people outside of the history society will benefit from being actively involved in the project. The oral history element of the project is undeveloped, with the applicant stating that any recordings made will be 'filed away', and re-printing copies of an earlier publication would be seen as a low priority. Overall the project is a medium priority.
Promoting our Glynneath & District Historical Society are seeking support for a project which will explore how the local area has changed in the past 100
years through researching photographic collections and archive material. The project involves the creation of a digital photographic archive
from a donated collection of 2,000 photographs and postcards of the area. 3 themed digital slideshows will be produce for presentation to
members of the local community. Collected material will also be used in a DVD and the provision of 6 internal display boards at local venues to promote the Glynneath & Cwmgwrach Heritage Trail .A copy of the final DVD will be deposited with the West Glamorgan Archive Service. A slide show will be prepared for public presentation and a series of open evening are planned at Glynneath Training Centre. Copies of the slide shows will be given to Glynneath Library as well as three local primary schools. The applicant expect around 50 people to attend each slide show, and up to 100 school children to access the slide. Library users will also have the chance to view the slide shows via the large wall mounted monitor there.
The project will research and collect the memories of the people of East Swansea of the 'calennig' tradition that would happen at the
beginning of a new year, a tradition that is dying out. The school plan to visit the Swansea University Library and Sain Ffagan to research old songs and the 'calan' tradition in the archives. Open meetings will be held at the school where the pupils will have an opportunity to interview and record local people's memories of the tradition. Following these meetings, pupils will work with Swansea University to create poems based on the information they have gathered. These poems will then be collected into a bilingual booklet and placed on the project website that will be accompanied by a selection of people's memories. An event will be held to launch the booklet and website with performances from the school choir.This project will enable different generations to collect memories of the 'calan' tradition, and enable the young people involved to learn about their heritage in a creative way. However there are some concerns with the project planning with meetings planned during school hours, and some likely costs not included in the budget.
This project will explore the history of important buildings in The Havens, West Wales. HCF proposes researching the history of the former M/L
WW2 airfield in Talgenny and 7 Grade II listed buildings in the area. Members will visit the National Library of Wales, St Fagans National
History Museum, the National Museum in Cardiff and their local Records Office to access archived material. Members will host a series of talks to share information and new skills including how to use the internet to research, to digitise old photographs and to use the websites of museums and records offices. While the heritage focus of the project is good, the application does not demonstrate that appropriate partnerships to deliver the learning elements of the project are in place. Project costs and activities also appear underdeveloped.
Series of visits to 3 hillforts in north Wales, organised by the Museums service, during July 2013 (one day for each hillfort) as part of the
Festival of British Archaeology. Hillforts will also have 're-enactors' to tell the story of the Celts, the hill-fort builders, through food, story-
telling, weaponry. Also exhibitions at New York Cottages Museum (Penmaenmawr) and Sir Henry Jones Museum - displays to last about 3 months. Digi outputs (images of hillfort visits etc) to be shared as socail media, learning resources for schools and on Rhanni (website for Welsh museums). Project fulfills AoS criteria of exploring heritage and sharing, but participation appears passive (not clear how schools groups will be involved).
A one year project that will see participants learn about the history of the Gwendraeth Valley in Carmarthenshire, and produce a DVD that
tells the story of the 27 villages that make it up, the effect of the coal mining, iron making, and agricultural industries on the area, and it's
significant natural and ancient features. Although the applicant group are clearly knowledgeable and passionate about their subject, the heritage focus of this project is very broad and the cost breakdown supplied very generalised. There is little in the way of exploratory activity, and much of the application describes work already done by members of the society. There are no numerical details/ targets, for example in relation to volunteers or recorded reminiscences, and it is not clear how other interested parties would be met and engaged. Whilst the production of a DVD is a significant element of the project, it is not specified who will make it, or how. The project is poorly defined on the whole, and is therefor considered a medium priority.
A 10 month project which will enable Bryncoch WI members to go on a series of visits to historic sites around Britain and then share what
they have learnt with other members and the wider community. The project is a low priority for support because there are no clear plans for heritage learning, no heritage partners and no specific groups identified who might be interested in sharing the learning.
Welcome to Blaenau Gwent is planning a project which will enable to relatively new Polich community living in Blaenau Gwent learn about Low
life in the area during the 1980's and share their own experience of living in 1980's Poland. The theme of the project is very broad and has
not been defined. It is not clear how people orignally from Blaenau Gwent will access information or learn about life during the same
Blaenau Gwent period in Poland. The project does not appear to be appropriately costed. The project is considered to be a low priority for support as it is
not considered to be sufficiently planned.
The project will organise a 'Wallace 100' day to celebrate AR Wallace, an important explorer, scientist and co-discoverer (with Darwin) of
the process of evolution by natural selection, with a programme of events in Neath town centre (displays in various buildings, performances
of play about Wallace; talks, children's exhibition; booklet to be distributed to local schools and other organisations. Disappointing that only
one Committee members appears to be donig the 'exploring' and research of Wallace in number of London museums-unclear how others
will be involved. No training costs? Digi outputs in website, digi photos.
The Bevin Boys The council aims to develop interactive interpretation for the Cefn Coed Colliery Museum based on the experiences of the typical Bevin
Boy.It seems that heritage research to inform the development of the interpretation material will be undertaken in-house by Museum staff.
There is reference to joint working with local history societies but no further proposals to extend participation in active research to new
audiences.The Museum will establish a 'memory day' inviting people to come together to share memories, photographs and newspaper clippings.Some interviews with local historians, community members and ex-miners will be taped to be used as audio visual clips in the interpretation material. Fundamentally, this project is a poor fit with the aims of the AOS programme. There are limited opportunities for active participation in exploring local heritage and the proposals for sharing heritage learning revolve around the creation of new interactive interpretation for the Museum. Overall, a low priority for support.
Hirwaun Historical Society is seeking a grant of £3,000 to create a website for their organisation as a means of disseminating information
about the town. The overall vision is to use the website in the future as an electronic repository for oral histories and historical
photographs.This project is a poor fit with the priorities of the All our Stories programme. Beyond the creation of the website, there are no
proposals for helping people explore their local heritage nor any scope for wider heritage learning. The aim is to launch the website at a local library and as part of this event to offer short tutorials to those who are new to be the web. Proposals for the celebratory event are poorly defined with no evidence of need or demand for the tutorials. Overall a low priority for support.
FCCM wish to create a book about the early, pre-industrial history of the Dulais Valley. Members of FCCM will undertake archival research Low
Valley Heritage at Cefn Coed Colliery Museum; the archives of Neath Antiquarian Society and the National Library of Wales in Aberystwyth. The proposal
is to create a book (1000 copies) which will be widely distributed in the local area. Overall the proposals for sharing heritage learning are poorly developed and will mainly revolve around the distribution of the book.Costs are modest and are primarily related to the cost of printing the book. The project meets both criteria for the programme but opportunities for getting people more actively involved in exploring local heritage and sharing heritage learning have been missed. Overall, a low priority for funding.
Memories of an A four month project to produce a bilingual booklet about the rich maritime orientated life of the east coast of Ynys Môn (Anglesey).
Participants will work with a local historian, Anglesey Archives and a local walk guide to learn about important local figures such as brave
lifeboat men, the maritime wildlife and research local social history, traditions and characters of the area. The booklet produced will be taken into schools with a local historian providing an overview for the pupils. The subject matter could be really interesting to the local
nclusion project that covers the whole of the North Wales. The project aims to explore and share with others the memories and
experiences of the residents of North Wales and bring to life the memories and pictures through digitalising slides, negatives and pictures
Memories Alive and from this creating memory books, dvd's and digital stories. A group of individuals with learning and physical disabilities from the clock
tower Mostyn will be volunteering to digitalise people's slides, photos and negatives. Open days will be held in each of the local authority areas of North Wales. A selection of pictures will be displayed, guest speakers (to be identified) to talk about their experiences, videos of the stories to be put on display.
Reflections on The heritage focus of the proposal is strong (Swansea's metal producing past and its development from a docks into Wales' second city).
However, identifying what the project is and the difference it will make is not easy to grasp.Partnerships with Swansea University and
Swansea Museum are mentioned as is attendance of workshop and training through the Department for Adult Continuing Education (DACE) but the detail is lacking on what these organisations will provide and the training that will be received. Based on the information provided officer recommends that the project is a low priority for funding on the grounds of insufficient project planning and a lack of
