‘My Life During Lockdown’
Archive for the Future
The North East Wales Archives wants to record the experiences of people in Flintshire and Denbighshire during this unprecedented period in history. The purpose of keeping archives is to preserve historical records to aid future understanding of events, people and places in history. We hope to create an Archive of information and images for future generations to help them understand how much the Coronavirus Crisis is affecting the local community and impacting on the lives of everyone involved.
Are you in lockdown at home, or going out to work in a changed and uncertain environment? How is it affecting your daily life? We would like to hear about the positive aspects as well as the unsettling and challenging ones! If you are keeping a daily journal or would like to contribute a poem, drawing, painting or a photograph depicting how life during lockdown looks to you, we would love to hear from you! Photographs could include images of shops closed down; deserted streets; usually crowded areas looking incongruously empty; wildlife returning to unexpected places.
E-mail your writing/images, with your name and address, to us at: firstname.lastname@example.org for Flintshire residents, and email@example.com for Denbighshire residents. The best contributions will be selected to form part of an historic collection of memories and in the future will help people to understand what the current crisis meant to people living in North East Wales.
