The Memories and Recollections Oral History Project was inspired by three women who visited St Clements church during the Heritage Open Days in September 2017. They spent some time with the volunteers of the Ipswich Arts Centre and shared their memories of their parents getting married and attending St Clements church as children.
Whilst much is known regarding the medieval history of the Church, the oral accounts of local residents and their ancestors who used the church many years ago have never been collected or preserved.
This project will capture these memories and recollections to construct a social narrative of the importance of St Clements Church – past and present. We are currently seeking volunteers to help with various events and with the recording of the oral history (full training will be given). We are also seeking stories/memories connected to the history of the church.
