Aims of Wickford Community Archive.
The aim of Wickford Community Archive is to develop a website which records the history of the town and its residents, using local people’s photographs and memories.
The group was set up with the support of the Essex Records Office and Essex Libraries, with funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
We have regular sessions in the library when members of the group will be on hand: to show people how to access and use the site; to scan photographs for including on the site; and to take the names of those people who would like to have their memories recorded.
We wish to include the life stories and memories of individual people but would also like to hear the history of groups and organisations in Wickford. You could contribute a page (or pages) to the site yourself, or, if you would like a hand, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or through Wickford Library 01268 732354.
Please spread the word for us amongst your friends, family, colleagues, members and neighbours who may be interested in contributing, or just looking at the site.
