We are living through extraordinary events that are affecting all our lives in ways we could not previously have imagined.  The South West Heritage Trust wants to ensure that the stories of Somerset and Devon’s people and places are recorded during these difficult times, so that future generations can find out about the challenges we faced and how our communities pulled together. 

We’re asking for your help in contributing to a community archive about experiences in Somerset and Devon during the Coronavirus emergency.  We’ve created a simple form below to capture your thoughts.  You can contribute to as many of the themes as you wish by completing a separate form for each.

If you would also like to forward us an image to add to your contribution you can do so by emailing us at somersetarchives@swheritage.org.uk.  Please include your name, place and theme when sending the email so that we can link it to your written contribution. Please use ‘Covid-19 Archive Submission’ as the title of your email and provide brief details about the subject of your image.

Alternatively, you can submit your thoughts to us on paper when our offices reopen.

We look forward to receiving your contribution.
