Some words from Jojo Spinks:
Hi, I’m Jojo Spinks and my family was one of those who moved from the West Quarter to Burnthouse Lane in the 1930s. (My dear nan is in the photo above, taken on the roof of Folletts!). These days, I help communities find creative ways to celebrate their places and their heritage. Come and join me for a series of West Quarter heritage sessions designed to bring the writer out in you. I know you’ve got the stories, why not let me help you shape the words? These are the stories of Exeter – they’re important – Let’s tell them together.
