Always hungry

Retro Open Day at Wincobank Chapel, SheffieldAlways Hungry (click here to see video interview with Graham Cliffe)

Over a hundred people gathered at the Chapel on 26 January 2013 despite deep snow that made driving impossible.  They came to the Wincobank Retro Day, organised in partnership with Sheffield Star to launch our All Our Stories project.  We had invited people who used to come to the chapel to return to share their memories and make a recording for the Chapel Archive.  After a technical glitch or two we are just beginning to upload them to YouTube.  Click on the title above to see the video interview.

There are lots more interesting videos about Wincobank on YouTube and more coming daily – have a look!

He quickly established himself as youth worker for the Flower Estate and is much loved.  Now in retirement, he looks back on those lively days.  Just click on the link, sit back and enjoy….
