Oral recordings

Oral history recording training was organised by Berwick Records Office in January 2020. Money to pay for the two sessions was raised by members of the Cornhill Social History Group at a 'Now and Then' event held in October 2019. Four people were trained In January.
Unfortunately, the Covid-19 pandemic prevented more progress. Recordings resumed in June 2022 and a new member of the group is being trained.

The following people have been interviewed and their recordings stored in the Berwick Records Office:

Len Beveridge
Nancy Clark (two recordings, one personal, one about the WI)
