The website will create an archive of memories


A website is being set up to record the memories and photographs of Stevenage townsfolk.

The staff at Herts Archives and Local Studies Library are putting together the project called Our Stevenage and are calling on townsfolk to tell them their stories of the town and upload their images.

Funded by Lottery money and Herts County Council, the project aims to create a document of the town through the eyes of its residents.

To get involved, get along to Stevenage Museum on Saturday February 26 from 2 to 4pm for the launch of the website, and take your photos, so staff can add them to the site.
