Two More Teachers Thanks To CHAHP

Following an appeal in the Parish Newsletters associated with CHAHP for residents of the area who wished to participate in a basic teacher training course, in order to run new workshops in the Project area, CHAHP is pleased to congratulate Suzanne Kellman and Lianne Crocker for passing their PTTLLS qualification. The two ladies participated in the Preparing To Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector course at Saltash College, part of Cornwall College. Suzanne is already putting her new found skills into action working with adults with learning disabilities at Morley Tambly Lodge. She will be devising a series of workshops which will enable CHAHP to fund the construction of a Sensory Trail in Golitha National Nature Reserve. Suzanne is also writing a course which will be delivered at the Liskerrett Centre during the Summer. Lianne on the other hand will be facilitating a course on Short Story Writing and Publishing, which will be starting on 19th April 2012 at Liskerrett.

Oral History Tapes

CHAHP Project Partner the Stuart House Heritage Group has this week started to digitise over 80 oral history interviews. This project which will also involve some bullet point transcriptions will allow the files, until recently held in a private collection, to be backed up and stored in more than one location for safety. It also means the files will be able to accessed & listened to by the general public. The first tape digitised contains an interview with Mr. Honey a waggoner who has first hand knowledge of the loading up of the Moorswater Anglican Church (a large galvanised steel structure) and its moving to Dobwalls on two timber wagons & being pulled by a team of horses. He remembers the books & bell were still in situ as the whole structure was moved!
