Calling all Walsall Dinner Ladies!

Caroline Molloy is a photographer based at Caldmore Community Garden. She is making a small scale research project in Walsall that raises the visibility of dinner ladies – there is a family connection there, as her own grandmother was a dinner lady, too. She aims to share personal narratives and photographs about Walsall based Dinner Ladies. 

She is looking for personal contact to start this research and is available on Wednesdays, and can either interview at the Caldmore Community Gardens (although times are restricted to opening times which are 10-4pm), in own homes or in a place of work. She is looking to conduct an interview, scan any photographs and at some point make a photo portrait. 

If you are interested in taking part, please get in touch with Caroline on 07889 987 991, e-mail or message Caldmore Community Garden.
