How often have you said “I should write down my memories but I don’t have the time”?

With so many activities being cancelled because of coronavirus, how often are you now saying “I want something to do”?

The 15 Minutes A Day Memory Project is a chance to answer both questions at the same time.   Could you spend 15 minutes a day:

  • Writing down your memories of Swannington?  – school, shops, neighbours, Christmas, places.
  • Searching your old photos of your time in Swannington?
  • Drawing or painting pictures of your Swannington memories?
  • Making an audio recording of your memories on your smartphone?

 

Now is your opportunity to help record Swannington’s history.  Just imagine how much you could write in a month.  Email items to the Trust via our contacts page – select the History and Archives option.  You can send in items daily, weekly or monthly.

You can of course spend more than 15 minutes a day on this activity.

The coronavirus pandemic has made a huge impact on Swannington’s life.  It also provides a unique opportunity to record the changes to daily life via some sort of diary.  Please record your routine and thoughts during this difficult time.
