Please share your memories of Goole for a unique archive



A big THANK YOU to everyone who contributed to Goole Civic Society's film, Reflections on Goole, which had its red-carpet premiere at the Lowther Hotel on Friday November 24th.

The film is a snapshot of a much larger public history video project, which aims to record the unique history and heritage of our port town. That project is continuing and we would love people to get in touch with their own stories.

Memories could be about growing up in Goole, working on the docks or at the shipyard, favourite haunts or pastimes, lives of your ancestors, funny stories or anything that recalls life in the town. We would also welcome photographs - not just historic ones but family photos of events in Goole.

Goole Civic Society Chair, Margaret Hicks-Clarke, said: "We would love to hear your memories of Goole and why the town is so special to you. There is no need to be camera-shy."

There is still chance to see the film. It will be screened at the Junction, Paradise Place, Goole, on Thursday, January 25th, at 2pm and 7.30pm. Tickets cost £1 and are available from the Junction box office.
