East Riding Archives are asking residents to share their memories of the COVID-19 lockdown period in a new COVID-19 collection, which will be preserved for the benefit of future generations.
The archives team are looking for items like photographs of people’s daily lives; pictures of empty streets; pictures and recordings of the ‘Clap for Carers’ on Thursday evenings, or other thanks for NHS and key workers; pictures of rainbows in windows; or even diaries with notes about what people have been doing during lockdown.
The records for the collection can be in a written, printed or digital format.
East Riding Archives are following the Government health guidelines and the Archives Service in the Treasure House in Beverley is currently closed to visitors.
Contributors are asked to keep any items safely until The Treasure House can reopen and staff are available to take receipt of them.
