Family Open Day - 24th August 2107

The Family open day at Bexhill Museum was a great success. Over 100 people came throughout the day and had fun joining in the activities and looking around the museum and POP exhibition whilst trying to solve the specially devised trail quiz.

Bexhill Museum would like to thank all the members of public who play the National Lottery which raises funds for projects such as People-Object-Place to take place.

Oral Histories

The POP project was invited to ETC Sussex in March to talk to their group members.

Education Training Consortium Sussex (etc sussex) was formed in 2008 to meet the training and education needs of people from marginalised communities. Amongst their great work they run English, Maths and IT classes for people whose first language is not English and offer support to help encourage integration into the community.

We were welcomed wholeheartedly into their class and were privileged to have been shared some personal histories of contemporary migration to Sussex. These recorded conversations gave a valuable insight to the struggles endured by those seeking a better life and the joy, hope and success it can bring. These collected oral histories form our heritage of today and will be archived for future generations to access.
