This 10 week activity took place at Summerhayes Wellbeing Centre in Newhaven between June and September 2007. Over the ten weeks participants got together to share memories of their younger days and of Newhaven Town.

The sessions were facilitated by Tracey Evans and the participants were Bob Jarvis, Hazel Horsnell, Ian McLean, Margaret Hunt and Rosie Page. The stories and memories of the participants were written down and along some wonderful photographs were put together to produce a book 'Reminiscences Of Newhaven Town'.

Along with the book a Reminiscence Box of many items relating to Newhaven's past was produced.
