Staffordshire Lockdown Memories

Staffordshire Archives and Heritage Service has launched a new project called ‘Lockdown Memories’. The aim of the project is to create a lasting record of the Covid-19 pandemic and lockdown measures and how they have affected the lives of Staffordshire people.

Everyone has been affected by the pandemic. You might have spent lockdown home schooling, or socially isolating in your own home, or may even have suffered through illness. Whatever your experience we would like to hear your story.

We also want to collect as many reminiscences as possible - these will help us to document Staffordshire’s response to the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020, and may be used for an exhibition, publication, or website.

If you have any objects, photographs, drawings, paintings or documents relating to your lockdown experiences that you would like to lend or donate to the Archive Service or the County Museum’s collections, please let us know. This might be photographs, protective clothing or leaflets, things linked to VE Day or the Black Lives Matter events, or anything else which you associate with your lockdown memories.

We would like school pupils to let us know their experiences of lockdown:

  • What did you do during lockdown?
  • What was good about lockdown?
  • What didn’t you like about lockdown?
  • Name, age and school.

Please email or send written responses to:
