For Sale to raise funds

Nearly 14 months or so since the Pandemic started and three lockdowns later the archive is still here.

Here at the Archive we have so far managed to keep going. We have added hundreds of photos and many stories to the site. We do miss you though. Our Saturdays at the library, our meetings in the War Memorial Hall and our exhibitions as well as giving our talks to other groups. This also means we have not been able to raise any money to keep the archive online. We are fortunately ok in the short term but we do need to do something about raising money.

We sold lots of Lucy’s books and our flood DVD before Christmas which was great and helped a lot but we still have a load to sell so if you are interested please read on.

For sale are Lucy Harrison’s book Captivating Canvey which you may well have read about on the site stories of Canvey as told by Canvey Islanders. She produced the book in 2006 in conjunction with her Canvey Guides project. We are selling them for £2 plus P&P. The other item is our Flood DVD over 100 photos, film and narrative by islanders at the time, costs £5 plus P&P.

Contact me on jan@canveyisland.org for more details.

Lastly don’t forget if you get bored to keep sorting those old photos and upload to the site or send them to us if you are not sure what to do.  Why not write some of your memories down especially you older folk. We want your stories send them in. Or if you have had strange or nice things happen to you during this difficult time we want to hear about that too. This Pandemic is history in the making. When I first came to the island the stories were all before or after the flood. In the future it is likely to be before or after the Pandemic. We are living the history of tomorrow.

Stay safe everyone.
