Article - Trawl through old albums for pics of doomed flats (Hyson Green, Nottingham)

ORGANISERS of a history project are appealing for photos and other memorabilia for an exhibition about the former Hyson Green flats.

The exhibition will be staged at the Museum of Nottingham Life, at Brewhouse Yard, this summer.

It is being put together through the On the Flats project, run by the Partnership Council to tell the history of the flats, which were demolished in 1988.

The exhibition will feature residents' memories and old maps and information about the area, including what Hyson Green was like before the flats were built.

Organisers are looking for people to loan photos taken inside or outside the flats and elsewhere in the neighbourhood. They are also appealing for memorabilia from the 60s, 70s and 80s, such as clothes, records, household items, toys and newspapers.

All items will returned once the exhibition has finished.

To find out more or to donate an item, call Helen Bates on 0115 9708200 or e-mail
