Remembering David Penhaligon

There's a really good project which is looking for funding at the moment. Remembering David Penhaligon is a project, hosted by the Cornish Audio Visual Archive, Cornish Story and the Institute of Cornish Studies at the University of Exeter, which aims to record the memories of friends and acquaintances of David Penhaligon – MP for Truro from 1974 to 1986.

They aim to build a website which will host the recorded memories, audio or video, of interviews with those that wish to contribute to the project. Many of these interviews will come from his native Cornwall, whether from school friends at Truro School, at Cornwall Technical College, when he was an engineer at Holman Brothers or as the sub-post master at Chacewater.

If you have any memories, get in touch with the people behind the project because they will want to hear from you.

But they also need £5,000 of funding to get the project off the ground. The website explains more, including some of the rewards on offer to those people who pledge money.
