A new project backed by the Heritage Lottery Fund is looking to find the "Living Legends, Hidden Histories" of Corby.

Arts collective Made in Corby have been successful in claiming £10,000 from the fund for the project to uncover hidden histories in the town, that also reflect Corby's changing population.

The idea has been inspired by the Facebook page "Humans of New York" and is looking for local people who may have an extraordinary story, uncelebrated achievement or suprising fact about their life.

Nominations are being taken online at madeincorby.co.uk and close in January, with an exhibition of photos and stories from the ten successful nominees planned for the town's Rooftop Arts Centre.
