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.

Want to play your part?

First you'll need to register a username and password. Then you can add pages to the site.

If you would like to join our group of volunteers recording people's oral histories and researching topics of local interest please contact us by email wickfordhistory@gmail.com or through Wickford Library 01268 732354.

Perhaps you would like to discuss informally how you might contribute to the archive, so why not visit us at one of our Memory Desks. (For details of their times, please see 'Meet the Archive Group').  


***********************NEWS ITEM.***********
The Community Archive held its annual Open Day, called 'A Glimpse of the Past' on Saturday 21st May, 2016, at Christchurch. There was a new display of photographs from the website, and opportunities for visitors to discuss and reminisce about Wickford in times gone by, and to bring photographs for scanning in to our collection and memories for adding to the site.
