The Jesmond Memories website was launched at Jesmond Library at 6pm on Friday 13th January 2017. An audience of familiar faces and library members, some of whom have already contributed to the project, came together with drinks, snacks and good cheer to see the website go live. After a short introduction from Felicity Mendelson and Sarah Mercer, Catherine Ellis gave a brief demonstration of the website, and played some memories for the audience to enjoy. This was followed by a brief Q&A, and then conversation and reminiscing over a glass of wine – our recordings certainly sparked some memories of Jesmond for our audience!
The website is now open for contributions, so please get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org, or use our contact us page to arrange sharing a memory of your own.
We hope that you enjoy Jesmond Memories!
