Hi, I’m Margaret a trustee at Settle Stories. I am almost 80 years old. With this in mind, I wanted to talk to you about how easy it is for older people to feel they have become invisible. Why you ask? I’d say quite simply it’s just because we have white hair, are inevitably slowing down and the world is moving on, ever faster.

Have you ever thought about why your town or village is the way it is?
Here at Settle Stories we believe local history matters. It helps us understand who we are, where we come from and who we want to become as people and communities.
