Newham New Deal Partnership

  • Newham New Deal Partnership
Local charity Newham New Deal Partnership has been awarded £81,700 from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for a two-year project to engage residents and workers of Stratford Village (E15) in researching the working lives of past and current residents through archive research and oral history collection.

They are looking for people with connections to the area between 1890 to 1990 who wish to be interviewed about their working/business life, which will be part of the oral history collection we will be depositing in Newham Archive.

They’re also looking for volunteers to get engaged with the project's historical research. A series of talks and walks about the project from Spring to the end of the year will be organised, uploading a Discovering Stratford Village website, and offering Discovering Stratford Village walking tours, latterly with a smart phone walks app.
