Share your memories to build an exciting new story of Lewisham's past.
Last year, Lewisham residents responded to a call out for stories that need to be told. Seven have been selected, each focused on a different aspect of Lewisham’s past. Now, we need you to share your memories to help tell these important stories.
Throughout 2022, these oral histories will be brought to life and transform public spaces across the borough, as well as populate a new digital museum of Lewisham Life.
