Wickford Community Archive

Help us to preserve yesterday for tomorrow

The Wickford Community Archive is a website created and being developed by local volunteers, preserving our history for the future. We need memories, photographs and local knowledge of Wickford, of the distant past and of more recent times. 'Wickford', for the purpose of this Archive, includes Runwell, Shotgate, Rawreth, North Benfleet, Crays Hill, Downham and the Ramsdens, although the boundaries are very flexible.


We held a very successful Open Day exhibition of photographs, the Archive website and artefacts at Christ Church on Saturday 11th October 2014. There were nearly 150 visitors during the day and a lot of interest was shown in the archive.

The Quiz Night held on that evening was very well attended, with 77 people making up 11 teams. The funds raised are for the running costs of the archive.
