Collectors of Memories
I am by no means a historian and there are many people out there who know lots more than I know about our town but I enjoy learning and sharing what I find.
I have built this website as a hobby over quite a long time now and I often change its appearance and add/remove parts of it as I attempt to make it evermore appealing to the public. My main objective has always been to include you and your knowledge and experiences by way of stories, photographs and anything else you might want to include.
Along the way I have very gratefully received lots of your photographs and postcards but there lies a problem. Many of these turn out to be someone else's property and whilst I do try to credit the rightful owners, this is an almost impossible task. Therefore, if you are the rightful owner of any work you see on any of these pages then please let me know and I will treat as per your wishes.
Saying that, I must thank several people who have either submitted or given permissions to use their own pieces. These people listed include but not fulfil a long list of whom I am extremely grateful.
