The Loughborough Reminiscence Group has published a new DVD ‘Early Memories of Asian Residents’ as part of its continuing work to capture elements of Loughborough’s rich history through people’s stories.

The 2 disc DVD features nine interviews with members of some the Asian communities of Loughborough. All the people interviewed arrived in Loughborough between 1963 and 1975. The contributors are from the Gujarati Hindu, Punjabi Hindu, Punjabi Sikh and Bangladeshi communities.

The DVD provides fascinating insight on Loughborough’s rich multicultural heritage and also features over a 100 photographs of family life and community events that the participants took part in during their time in Loughborough.

The DVD package contains excellent source material that local schools could incorporate into many areas of their curriculum but that any other person, from Loughborough or not, will find interesting.

Copies of the DVD cost £10, and are available from Loughborough Reminiscence Group by calling Mike Jones on 01509 843433.
