Ambition for Aging funded the memory bank project which was run by Paul and Rita Gornall in conjunction with the Reminiscence Group of Halliwell History Society. The outcome of the project, which ran from January to March 2019, is online video blogs in which older Bolton people talk about various history aspects of life in Bolton - click here for the website.
Paul was the chair of Live from Worktown (LfW) from 2015 to 2022. In October 2019 LfW received a fairly major grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) which allowed them to expand their operation, though they failed to build on this promising start and this led, eventually, to Paul leaving the organisation (as it turned into a CIC) though he is still an associate.
