RECOLLECTIONS of local life from patients at York’s St Leonard’s Hospice are to be included on a website devoted to reminiscences of the city.
Visitors from the York Stories website were at the hospice with recording equipment and asked the patients about their memories.
The recordings are to be used for the website and will also by the British Library Web Archiving programme.
Emma Johnson, the director of clinical services at St Leonard’s, said: “Our patients often chat to each other about the past in York, and it always proves fascinating, so it will be great to have some of those memories permanently recorded.
“They may help future generations to know what life was like was like in what is our immediate past, and to hear the voices of people who tell the stories.”
