I had a lovely time meeting up with one of our Cambridgeshire Community Archives Network (CCAN) archive groups this week. The Romany Archive is run through the Romany Theatre Group and they are going to be adding some more great stuff - as with all our CCAN groups and people who want to get involved with CCAN - Cambridgeshire largest community run archives website- we give free training, advice and care - from audio training, how to do oral history, publishing archives and written work, looking after old photos etc. etc.
As of 2011 we will continue to come and visit groups and people interested, for free, but we will also be running regular free workshops where you can come along with your memories, interest and old photos and find out more - Look out for news, dates and locations coming soon!!!
