How to meet the Archive group.

Original members of the Archive Group (2011).

You can meet members of the Wickford Community Archive at their Memory Desks which are held at Wickford library on the 2nd Saturday and 4th Thursday of each month, from 10.00am until 12noon. The dates for the next few Memory Desks are shown below.

We will be on hand: to show people how to access and use the site; to scan photographs for including on the site;  to take the names of those people who would like to have their memories recorded; to listen to people remembering early days of our community.

The photograph shows the original members of the group when the archive was launched in 2011.

  • Wow! Thank you for this amazing site.
    My Mom is the daughter of Leonard Longman (the first soldier from Wickford to lose his life in the Second World War.) Our parents moved to Australia in the late 1950s.
    Mum has so enjoyed this trip down memory lane as I have shared the photos and stories that are on this website with her.

  • I am enjoying looking at this site and find it informative. Can you tell me where in London Road the houses called St. Clare and Ashley Dene were situated?-they were in existence in the 1930s I believe. Unfortunately I do not have photos of them.
