Park Life Project


In 2012, St Antony’s Centre was granted £7,800.00 as part of the All Our Stories Heritage Lottery Fund. This exciting project led by The Trafford Park Heritage Centre established an audio visual exhibition with digitized images and digital recordings by people who lived or worked on the Trafford Park industrial estate. In addition to this, activity packs for schools to help children understand the lives and experiences of those from the Trafford Park area were created and shared across schools. In 2013 a number of recordings and celebration events were held which included local songwriters and musicians performing.

The nature of the Heritage Grant was to create an opportunity for everyone to get involved in their heritage and for community groups to carry out activities that help people explore, share and celebrate their local heritage.
