CORONOVIRUS ARCHIVE PROJECT

Before lockdown started it was suggested that we, FSLS, develop a project about the coronavirus and its effect on people in Frome.  Various groups and individuals were contacted and have agreed to write diaries, take photographs, pen poems, write stories, anything which will add to what we hope will become a valuable social history resource for researchers in the future.

This is a very brief sample of some of the material we’ve collected so far.  If you think you would like to get involved, or know anyone who might,  please contact me at lizbvn@hotmail.co.uk
