Evolve: Neighbourhood Regeneration Through Partnership
Neighbourhood asked to help with community DVD project
20 April 2009
A NEW DVD is being produced about the past, present and future of the Bedford, Queens and Worcester areas of Bootle - and the help of the local community is needed to make it a success.
The makers of the DVD are now looking for anybody with memories of the area in the past, views they would like to share about the present, or their aspirations for the future.
This could involve simply having a chat with one of the DVD makers - either on or off-camera - or helping out with photos, film footage or documents. In particular, some of the buildings that are now gone - such as the Bath House and the Museum - might be recalled.
Jack Costello, chair of the Evolve RAP, said: "This is an area that is undergoing great change, and the purpose of the DVD is to capture not only the memories of the past, but what we have achieved so far and what we want to achieve in the future."
If you do have memories you would like to share, or would like to get involved and talk about the past or present, please come along to the Evolve Neighbourhood Centre on Queens Road on Thursday April 30 between 5 and 7pm. If that date is not convenient, or if you have trouble getting out of the house, contact Irene Crone at Evolve on 0151 955 4289.
The DVD is being made by members of the Evolve Residents' Advisory Panel and the Evolve Youth Forum, with Keyhole Productions. It is funded by the Housing Market Renewal Community Champions programme and Evolve RAP.
Evolve is a neighbourhood partnership between Plus Dane Group, Sefton Housing Market Renewal, Sefton MBC and Cosmopolitan Housing Association aimed at revitalising and regenerating key areas of Bootle.
