'Ham is where the heart is' is an exciting new Heritage Lottery Funded oral history project (also supported by Ham Amenities Group and Petersham United Charities) which needs your help to capture unique and fascinating stories.

We need people to be trained to conduct interviews, suggestions for interviewees; volunteers to undertake background research, donations or loans of photographs and memorabilia for copying; help with establishing a website and setting up a learning resource; and much, much more.
