If anyone has any photographs of Whit Monday I would be grateful if I could take copies,also anyone interested in taking part in audio memories of the day please contact me . I'm organising an exhibition of the day. The last joint Walking Day was 1968. It's important that part of our heritage is remembered for future generations to be able to reference . The audio will give a flavour of what the day was like. Who knows your memories may be listened to by generations still unborn !
