Evaluation, archiving, publication preparation
The lottery-funded grant period for the project which we have benfitted from since 2010 is now in its very final phase. We are preparing all the material we have gathered for permanent archive at Oxfordshire County Museums Service, and working on a book about the project.
We have planned from the start to be an example of a community research project which finishes all the work it started (and we started a lot!), and leaves nothing behind which is unpublished, not properly reported upon, unarchived, or otherwise a problem for the future.
We are aiming to keep up high levels of interest in East Oxford's heritage and maintain a pool of people from our many hundreds of volunteers who are able to carry it forward into the future.
We are also undertaking an online survey about the impact of the project - this has gone out by email to everyone who has submitted their details using Sign Up on this website since 2010. If you have been contacted about this, please respond!!
