By bringing together people who stayed in the centres, recording their narratives and collecting photographs and documents, the project will bring to life this fascinating period of the SOEC history.

We would love to hear from anyone who stayed at the centres 1940 - 60 or who stayed locally and has memories from the period. Please contact.
