Somewhere to start new lines of interest
It has become obvious that when making comments about articles, new chains of thought arise and memories go off at a tangent. I intend therefore to collect these from your comments and set up a new section in the who, what and where to enable these to be collected for expansion as others’ memories are evoked.
I will, where time permits, contact the contributor to inform them of the changes I have made. I hope this is acceptable to you all.
I will also add a second section so that you can ask for information as to peoples’ memories of friends, work places and location where you spent time in your earlier days.
This will be in addition to the message board where a number of new stories and requests have been made.
So please keep watch on the new sections and message board.
The site is developing well but we need more memories and photographs, and some contributions from the younger members of our community. Remember, people still live in these communities we are trying to tell the social history of and the history is still evolving, despite the destruction caused by the Basildon Development Corporation and its successors.
