The Tarner Stories project team is working with individuals and communities recording the stories and memories of those that have lived and worked in the Tarner area from the 1930s to the present day.

Based at Brighton Unemployed Centre Families Project, Tarner Stories is a community confidence and skills building project exploring the changing landscape and culture of this central, yet marginalized area of Brighton.

Did you or members of your family live in the Tarner area? Do you have any memories or reminscences to share? Maybe you have some old photographs of the time? Please come along and share them with us.
