Aawaz are working with Central ward residents on an exciting and unique heritage project to bring local history to life.

Working with local residents we are looking back on the past one hundred years of the Central Ward in Accrington Hyndburn. To keep up to date with the latest news read Bibi’s Blog here.

We are looking at four themes:

• People – the residents over the years
• Places – the houses and the facilities, the street furniture and the ward boundaries
• Business- shops and mills, where residents will have been employed
• Education/religious places of worship- looking at the history of the school, the church and the first mosque.

A group residents have joined Bibi to write a weekly blog of how we are getting on with the activities, read up on the adventures, excitement and challenges!!

We are inviting everyone to come forward with their ideas, their stories, their memories of living or working in the ward. Please contact us on 01254 398176
