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.
