WE WON!!!! Pics etc.. to follow. Thank you to all the people who were originally interviewed by the Hayle Oral History Project, for all those that helped gather memories/ interviews and for all the archives as well as funding from Heritage Lottery Fund and some local funding from Hayle Town Council, The Cornish Mining World Heritage Site, Harveys Foundry Trust and Cornwall Council. To turn the app into an app - the bit that really won, thank you to Heritage Lottery Fund in partnership with Falmouth University as well as ESF for funding my PhD while I did the app & research at Falmouth.
