Re-drawing the map:an arts project

In 1957, a local Hale lady, Evelyn Caesar, produced a pictorial map of the parish of Hale as it was then.  She included a wealth of historical material and her legacy is a very attractive document.

Since Miss Caesar’s time, there have been many changes in the Parish: some buildings have disappeared, others have been built.  Perhaps the biggest change of all is the alteration to the Parish Boundary itself: we now live in the Parish of Badshot Lea and Hale and consequently, we need to re-draw our parish map.  This is particularly relevant this year as it is exactly 60 years since the original map was produced!

Our aim is not to produce a particularly accurate map, but to put pictures of buildings, parks and other features that mean something to us (we could even draw our own homes!).  We also need plenty of people, dogs and cars to put on the streets.  Photos of lots of local buildings and parks will be provided, but if you have any pictures that you would like to draw on our map, please bring them along.

You are needed to help with this project:  GOOD LUCK!
