As part of The Roots Project we have been training volunteers from Southwark Pensioners Centre to conduct and record interviews with local residents. These oral histories of local people are a wonderful view into their lives and the history of Walworth and Baldwins.

We’re really excited to share the first of these interviews now, Mr Rudolph Francois who was interviewed by Bibi Saffina Zafar in November of last year. Mr Francois shares some of his memories of Guyana, Baldwins and his aloe vera remedies… Enjoy!
