Were you among the first of the New Town residents?; or already living in West Lothian in the 1960s?; or perhaps one of the many children who were born and grew up in Livingston over the past 50 years? Would you be willing to take part in our oral history project and share your experience of New Town life with future generations? Whatever your story is, West Lothian Council Archives would like to hear from you.
2012 was the 50th anniversary of Livingston New Town. In partnership with Community Arts Service, West Lothian Council Archives have been awarded £49,800 from the Heritage Lottery Fund for the “Life is for Livingston – 50 years of new town life” project. This education and arts project is working with various communities and groups within Livingston in researching, recording and presenting the story of the new town in new and exciting ways. For more information on the project read our blog at http://lothianlives.org.uk/?p=3057
Over the next few months we will be training volunteers to gather oral history in order to record and preserve stories and memories about all aspects of Livingston life. If you would like to participate either as a volunteer or to share your story we would be very interested to hear from you.
