We ran a two-day event at Leeds City Museum 10th-11th August 2010 to look at 'green' memories over the years.

The West Yorkshire Archive Service were at Leeds City Museum during August 2010 to run a 'green' themed event. It was so successful that we were asked to come back for a second day! We looked at the wartime campaigns, such as Make Do and Mend and Dig For Victory, displaying some original records from the 1940s. Visitors could also join in our scrapbooking activities and our knitting crafts, and contribute to our memories wall.

The following four pages are all the memories we collected from the young and not-so-young at Kirkstall Festival, Morley Elderly Action coffee morning and the Leeds City Museum event. If you would like to give us your memory to add to these, please contact Rachel on (0113) 2898 223 or
