Welcome to the Life In Stradbroke project. This archive started to try and capture what life was like in lockdown for the residents of Stradbroke, Suffolk in 2020/21
It was 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 during a pandemic.
As we come out of this challenging period of time and new events take place, life evolves and changes, we have decided to leave this archive open to collect the life of Stradbroke after the pandemic too.
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 big events in the life of Stradbroke. Today is tomorrows history!
Let the village of now and the Stradbroke of the future see how we live our day to day lives by joining in and adding your experiences!
