Somerset Jubilee Parish Portraits
In this Platinum Jubilee year the Somerset Archives and Local Studies Service, part of the South West Heritage Trust, are putting out an appeal to ask you to send us portraits of your parish, something which will mark your parish's place at this unique moment in history and to provide future generations of Somerset with information on our communities.
We aren't looking for a history of the parish, we have lots of that already, but a snapshot of your parish today, a celebration of what makes your parish special in 2022. Things which you may wish to include could be:
- Local shops and business
- Services and facilities
- Clubs, societies, and village past times
- Schools and pre-schools
- Environmental initiatives
- Modern day traditions
- The effect of the Covid-19 Pandemic on your community, and how has your community come together to support each other
- How your parish is marking the Jubilee
The appeal is run by the Somerset Archives and Local Studies Service. Open the document below for the full details!
