Welcome to the COVID-19 Life In Stradbroke project. This archive has been set up to try and capture what life is like in lockdown for the residents of Stradbroke, Suffolk.
It is hoped that by collecting our social history of this global event in real time, that generations to come will have a real window into our village experience in 2020.
This archive is designed to allow easy upload by villagers of their contributions - you can add photographs, videos, memories (as text) and audio recordings. We want to capture the every day types of experiences as well as the birthdays and special events. So that walk in the fields, the food deliveries, learning to video conference and facetime, working from home, or not working from home! How are you managing with social distancing? What have you learnt to cook? Share your recipes! Who has been helping and who is being helped? How are you keeping in touch with friends and family? Are your school aged children adapting to online learning? Lets see the work they are proud of!
And of course... please upload your rainbows!
Let the village of now and the Stradbroke of the future see how the global pandemic has affected our day to day life by joining in and adding your experiences.

Not quite ribbons but close enough.
During lockdown people started to create Rainbow pictures and stick them in their windows for children to find on walks during isolation.
