Imagining Community at Cedarwood

Cedarwood Trust is running a community research project. They are exploring the history of the community on the Meadow Well Estate in North Tyneside through a family history approach, using oral history, drama, creative writing, family history research and other methods.

The core group (pictured top right) meets weekly at Cedarwood’s premises on the estate. The poems (below) written by facilitator Yvonne Hall, reflect some of the themes emerging from the discussions about their experiences of living through several decades of change and regeneration.
