Salford Residents Wanted to Explore History of Salford Landmark
Start in Salford, the community creative arts charity, has been awarded a £9,900 grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund as part of a country-wide initiative to bring to life the stories of historic buildings and monuments.
Start in Salford's headquarters, the historic Grade II listed Brunswick House, situated on Broad Street, has been chosen as one such building. As a result Start in Salford want to hear from people who have memories of Brunswick House, whether it be when Brunswick House was a church, school or in its current guise as a community learning centre.
All stories will be used to tell the story of the building from a human perspective, keeping history alive in our city with its ever changing and soulless new skyline.
"All of us at Start in Salford are thrilled to have been awarded this grant and we can't wait to get started" says Michelle Dennett of Start in Salford "Brunswick House is such a special place and we are sure there is so much to discover about its past."
If you have a story or wish to get involved contact Michelle Dennett on 0161 351 6000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
