Bridging the History

Meadow Well Connected is running a community-led oral history project focusing on the history of the Meadow Well Estate. Since the end of 2013 they have been working with a group of local residents to share memories and experiences of living on the estate, and to create a timeline of key events and changes. 

This culminated in the launch on May 28th 2014 of an exhibition based around this timeline. The event began with a formal launch by North Tyneside’s Mayor, Norma Redfearn, and members of the group. During the afternoon and evening there was a drop-in for local residents and other interested people to see the exhibition and film created by the project, and to share their views and experiences. This was the first step in a wider process of consultation and research in order to engage the community in exploring the identity and history of the area.
