COMMUNITY ARCHIVE


Containing over 5,700 entries, the latest version has sold out

work is in progress to develop an Internet based version 

The Buckley Society Archive is a Community Multi Media Archive (COMMA) which has been compiled over the last ten  years using the Comma Net  program. Some 290 people have contributed to what has developed into a rich resource  covering  many aspects  of  both the formal  and informal history of Buckley, complementing and informing the other work of the Society.    Contributions have varied in scope between the donation of a single image or piece of text and the presentation  by one  individual or  group of written accounts,  images and  documents  on a  variety of topics, some especially for the archive. 

Apart from everyone in the very active and enthusiastic team  who  meet  regularly  to  further the work  on  the archive, we  would  also like  to  thank  the  Community   Librarian Mandy Glendinning and the  staff  at Buckley Library for their help and support.

 We are grateful for financial support in the early stages of this project from: The Heritage Lottery Fund Awards for all Wales, Buckley Town Council, Joe Chesters.

Please note the contents of the Archive are copyright protected.


 

Want to help add to the Archive ?

The archive team meets on alternate Wednesday afternoons, 2.30 - 4.30 p.m. in Buckley Library except for the month of August. Everyone is welcome to visit us at the library - to bring along items for inclusion in the archive, to have a look at the archive itself or just to meet the people involved and have a chat about old times in Buckley. These sessions are proving very popular!
