Public can contribute to Christmas memories project
Residents in a Cornish town will soon be able to hear stories of Christmas past as a new "reminiscence project" forms part of their annual festivities.
Sound artist Stephanie Norgaard has been gathering recordings from older residents in Liskeard and will turn their stories into a CD available to hear at Liskeard & District Museum.
Other Liskeard residents are encouraged to write their own Christmas memories and post them in a special red postbox displayed in the town or in the Liskerrett Centre.
The Christmas Reminiscence Project is just one of the events taking place for "Liskeard Lights Up".

Festivities will begin on the morning of Saturday, December 1, when musicians perform around the town. A Cornish dancing workshop will take place in the Public Hall (from 10am-12), the museum will host live singing from the Rock Choir (3-3.30pm), and there will be a nativity, mince pies and hot chocolate available in the Methodist Hall.
At 6.30pm, a lantern procession will begin. Nine local schools will join in the procession, each using a different Cornish Christmas carol as a theme. Accompanying the school carols will be the community-based band Samba Kernow, the Liskeard Silver Band, and the Cornish music group, the Hornets Street Band.
The celebrations will conclude with the switching on of the Christmas lights, and a town centre firework display.
