Suffolk is fortunate in that there is a Local History Recorders Scheme which has been running for a number of years. The main purpose is to establish a network of people scross the country (ideally one in each parish) to record the present and to be on the look out for items of historical interest that may be overlooked and lost to future historians. These items do not just include the ususal minute books and manorial records, but the full range of written and printed material such as letters, maps, accounts, diaries, title deeds, pamphlets, drawings, parish magazines etc.Eventually, all material will end up at the County Record Office and will then be available to all present and future historians.
If you should have any material (incl records, photographs etc) which you no longer wish to retain, please do pass them on to your local history recorder. Bill Blackaby (Wyverstone) 01359 242369 or Rose Graham (Bacton) 01449 780201.
If you should have material relating to other Suffolk parishes, the details of the Local History Recorder can be obtained by contacting the Suffolk Local History Council on 01473 254291 / Email firstname.lastname@example.org / web www.slhc.org.uk
