Wednesday 22nd July started rather grey, then it rained and then – hooray! – the sun came out! This was the day when much of the Winsford Archive, that hadn’t been seen before, was on display.
Over the years interesting photos had been collected but in many cases it wasn’t known who thefeatured people were. Some photos were so old that it was unlikely that anyone was old enough to remember!
However, we hadn’t reckoned on the fantastic response from local people, the editorial in the West Somerset Free Press, the Parish Magazine and the interest from people from far and wide. What a resource they proved to be!
More than 100 people visited the display and more than 70% of the questions were answered. Visitors shared their photos, knowledge of Winsford’s farms, families an stories. Lots of old friends and neighbours met up for a chat – some hadn’t seen each other for 20 years.
The Archivist and Researcher would like to thank everyone who came and especially the ‘helpers’ on the day, the interviewers, the recorders, our resident photographer and the tea & coffee makers.
