Hereford’s old livestock market is the stimulus for an exciting new heritage project which brings people together from all over the county to share memories, gain skills and make a film which celebrates our shared agricultural history.
Chewing the Cud, the inaugural project from Catcher Media Social is really gearing up now. All good stuff. We’ve had one event in which we met volunteers and we’ve got three training sessions coming up in the following two weeks. Trainees will learn about research, social media techniques, film-making and oral history interview techniques.

The project is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, together with Herefordshire Council’s Museum Service, Cargill Community Partnership and the NFUM Community Giving Fund and supported by Hereford Market Auctioneers, Herefordshire Lore, Herefordshire Council’s Archive Service
