New book celebrates Hollybush Conservation Centre

With funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund the Friends of Hollybush have been busy collecting and recording memories from past volunteers and staff, plus researching the history of the site, writes John Preston.

So the project that was originally subtitled “Hippies and Dole claimants their heritage” is completed. It features colourful silk paintings by last year’s Year 6 at Hollybush Primary School.

The book “Hollybush 1979-2019 An illustrated oral history” is now ready to be printed.

To order your copy of this limited edition publication at pre-publication prices please go to the Friends of Hollybush website.

Alternatively visit Hollybush in person and bring cash and complete an order form. The offer closes 17th January and books should be available for collection in early February or to be posted out.

Many of the stories in the book can be read here, however the book contains additional material and different photos.
