Alcester Heritage Network
Alcester and its district is a charming rural area, ranged around a small Tudor town centre at its heart; an area which regularly reveals its Roman origins, whenever there is modern development work taking place.
Alcester Heritage Network adds one more string to that bow and exists to create, digitise and develop a broad and accessible Community Archive. Our collection encompasses information gleaned from primary and secondary sources along with digital copies of records, images and objects that illustrate and span the history of our local community, from distant to more recent times.
We are a 100% voluntary group and actively seek new volunteers to join us in scanning, archiving and indexing our collections and creating our community albums.
In particular, we need volunteers to help us digitise and catalogue an important collection bequeathed to us by local historian Pauline Sands. Do get in touch if you have an eye for detail, sight than can cope with very small writing and a high threshold for minutiae! Average digital skills are all that are needed beyond all that.
