The Bluebell Club

Anna worked with members of The Bluebell Club at residential Cedars Court in Whitley, Reading, to reminisce about their lives & loves, family & friends as part of Aspire2 community project WHITFEST.

The Bluebell Club told Anna their stories – about times when they worked in Whitley, as builders, as trolley bus drivers and on parent’s allotments and Anna created poems with them, particularly inspired by three of the residents & members – Barbara, Joyce & Dave.

Anna also worked at Whitley Library to create the poem Witelei, about the ancient history of this place, that dates back to the Doomsday Book.
