Film Title: Redburn House and the Dunville Family

On behalf of Holywood Shared Town, Robin Masefield applied for a Community Heritage grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund. The grant has enabled the production of a film which was edited by Conor Kelly in spring 2021, drawing on material from Colin Steele, the late Gordon Thompson, Patricia McKeaveney, Andy Moore, Sam Christie, Billy McCall, and others. It tells the story of Redburn House and the Dunville family as a film, using old film footage from the 1960s, and recordings of descendants of former staff at Redburn, together with many photographs.

Members of the Holywood u3a played various roles in the project which was greatly appreciated. The Heritage grant also facilitated the reprinting of a free Community Guide to Redburn Country Park (copies of which will be in Holywood Library) and the erection of information panels showing historic images of Redburn House and gardens (which Robin and Rosemary have created). The front cover of the Guide contains a QR code that provides direct access to the film.

Alternatively, the link to the YouTube page with the film is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KHBD4KMOfgsandfeature=youtu.be. The film is also now accessible on the Holywood u3a website, and various Holywood Facebook pages.
