I searched Facebook and found a public group called PK Remembered and have contacted several of the people posting there. Some have already responded with names and memories of their time in Porthcurno. So I’m feeling more hopeful now about the project.
I’ve learned that there was a college nurse. There were many cases of measles in the 1970s (that would be before they gave the MMR jab).
My aim in the new year is to talk to at least 2 people who were at the college and still come to work or volunteer there. Also, speak to two friends whose fathers were at the college.
I’m finding that learning about the social history of PK is very interesting – my challenge is to keep the information I gather connected and relevant and contained in a short video!
