SPEAK about your memories of Hayes to English learners as part of a Hillingdon Council adult learning project.
The project, based at the Old Vinyl Factory, wants people living in Hayes and Harlington to speak about their time in the borough, to those who have recently settled in the area and are learning English.
Old film footage of Hayes will be shown to stimulate discussion, and those who volunteer will be encouraged to bring their own photos and films.
The aim to is to have tellers share and compare stories, and the students will learn additional reading, writing, and speaking skills, with the whole initiative promoting cultural understanding, and improving students' chances of finding employment.
The students will complete a project looking at the history of Hayes for their end of term assessment, which will be showcased during Adult Learners Week 2014, and featured in the second Calling the Tune Film Festival in June 2014.
Councillor David Simmonds, Cabinet Member for Education, said: "Our adult learning team are always coming up with new and innovative schemes for local residents and this is just one of them."
The project will take place over three sessions starting in November.
