RESIDENTS are urged to dig out old snapshots and share their memories of growing up.

Photographs and stories from a community’s past will go on show at an exhibition.

The second annual Sealand Heritage Exhibition takes place at St Bartholomew’s 

Church in Sealand, from Friday, July 31 to Sunday, August 2.

A 100 Year Snapshot of Sealand is part of the community’s First World War Heritage Project and will feature illustrated talks, photo displays and recollections from the past.

As part of the research process, a residents’ coffee morning will be held on Wednesday July 29 at 10.30am.

Churchwarden Jennifer Watson said it would be an opportunity to enjoy a chat and a coffee with friends and neighbours and to share memories of growing up in the area.

“We hope to capture more tales of life in Sealand,” she said.

Residents are encouraged to bring along any stories and photographs or other memorabilia they might have. 

There is no charge for the event but donations to the church will be welcomed.
