The archive volunteers had a very busy 2019 with events running alongside moving the archive and setting up facilities in the Albaston Cemetery Chapel. We were looking forward to welcoming more visitors and volunteers and a programme of participating in local events during 2020 when the Covid restrictions effectively shut us down. Some volunteers have continued working at home but all the customary local events during 2020 were cancelled and those for 2021 are in abeyance whilst we wait for the crisis to pass and resumption of community activities in some form.
Exhibition at the Archive
In early November 2019 the archive put on an exhibition focusing on 'Those who stayed at home' during WW2. The display was squeezed into the archive store space before the final shelving units arrived and was available to view until Remembrance Day.
A selection of material from the 2019 WW2 exhibition is presented on the Exhibition tab.
