You can take part in this project through online and in person activities. Anyone who has lived in Seacroft at any time is welcome to get involved in these activities. Before you participate you will be given an information sheet and consent form so that you can decide whether you would like to take part. The stories that are contributed to the project might be used in different ways, depending on the wishes of each person. We will explain the different purposes to you – including a new ‘Seacroft Stories’ collection at the West Yorkshire Archive Service, an online exhibition on this website, and in publications – and you can choose whether you would like to contribute your story to some or all of these, or just take it home with you.
If you have any questions about these events and activities you can ask us at the event, or get in touch with Jessica Hammett to find out more: firstname.lastname@example.org.
