Lockdown Memories

Lockdown Memories is a project working to create a lasting record of the Covid-19 pandemic and lockdown measures and how it has affected the lives of Staffordshire people.Lockdown memories logo

Everyone has been affected by the pandemic. You might have spent lockdown working for the NHS or as a key worker, 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 would like 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.

Please complete our short questionnaire linked below.

Please take care to complete the section giving permission for us to make use of any stories you submit.

Also, 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 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.
