The success of creating this collection depends very much on contributions from past and current residents, businesses, groups and organisations. Any donations of photographs, yearbooks, programmes, diaries, letters or memorabilia would be greatly appreciated. If you do not wish to part with items we would be happy for the opportunity to copy them and return your originals. Local groups, such as sporting groups, are encouraged to deposit their newsletters, records, scrapbooks, etc, with the collection. All donations are greatly appreciated.
