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.

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!
