People in Glossop and the High Peak are being given an opportunity to record their personal experiences of the pandemic as part of an archive project.
Members of Glossop Labour Club agreed at their last Annual General Meeting to place on record people’s experiences that future generations would be able to access.
The Club’s Chair Derek Clarke said the voices of ordinary working-class people were rarely heard in history.
“The aim of the archive is to gather experiences of the pandemic from local people.
“Their memories of catching the disease, the loss of loved ones, the changes in people’s daily routines all needed to be recorded for prosperity.”
The Club has already published a collection of poetry by local people about the pandemic and this will also be included in the archive.
Derek said people can submit their thoughts, poetry, drawings, photos anonymously or with their names.
They can email Derek at firstname.lastname@example.org or post it through the Club's letterbox on Chapel Street.
All information will be bound into a folder and maintained in the Club Archive.
