Dan Musty is making a film about Minimodels which began life in Havant and ended up in Fulflood Road, Leigh Park. The factory closed some 45-years ago.

The Spring Arts and Heritage Centre, supported by a grant from The National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund, now has the opportunity to research and record the history of the factory and its workers.

The grant will fund the creation of a professional documentary film featuring interviews with former factory workers and tracing the development of the company. The film will be part of a temporary exhibition at the Spring, to run later this year.

An interactive exhibit will also be created to enable the story to be recorded permanently in the borough’s museum. A booklet featuring the memories of the factory workers will also be compiled.

If you’re interested in getting involved in the project contact Dan on dan@millstreamproductions.com or drop me a line and I will pass it on.
