Nostalgia - Spoken History group

Open meeting - all welcome

The history of Oakwood Church and the people who pass through its doors is inseparable from the history of Oakwood and of Leeds


Those who made their homes near Oakwood were and are responsible for the development of church life as we know it, the church buildings and much of the spiritual and physical development of our community


If, like me, you are one of those who has a natural curiosity to know who those people were, why they lived as they did, what it was like in the war years, what television programmes were popular, why our roads go where they go, why that building exists and so on, please come along and share your memories


If you are able to bring materials such as old books, menus, adverts, postcards, photographs, letters, maps, newspaper cuttings, clothing, objects and so on, that would be wonderful

Or simply come along, enjoy the company, ask and listen

Research by the University of Southampton published in 2012 concluded that reminiscing is good for our general wellbeing

During the winter months from October until Easter we usually meet from 13.15 until 14.45 in the New Room at Oakwood Church on the first Thursday of each month

Like most other Church Life groups, we have ask for a donation of £1 a session towards room and miscellaneous costs.

Refreshments are available, donated by group members on a voluntary rota

We look forward to enjoying your company and hearing your memories
