The Heritage Centre is a record of the local community and will continue to develop, so the team is keen to receive donations of local items that can help describe the town’s history. Documents and photos can tell the story but physical objects can help make that history much more accessible, especially to younger generations.
Almost a thousand pictures and supporting information this website charts the history of the Norfolk market town of North Walsham from the 18th century to the end of the 20th century.
I’m proud to complete another local design and print job. The North Walsham & District Community Archive 2019 calendar joins its predecessors. A 2 colour, litho printed, 32 page A4 calendar of North Walsham and local district scenes, photographed by local photographers, supported by local advertisers, produced in North Walsham (yep, that’s me!) and printed locally. You be hard pressed to find a more community created product. It’s useful, collectable and top quality. I really hope that many people will keep copies of these calendars for years to come as they will then preserve North Walsham’s photographic heritage for future generations. Which is, after all, what the North Walsham and District community archive group was set up to achieve.
This week I have edited together this 10 minute film using amazing cine film footage we was tranferred from Super-8 to VHS video tape many years back. I digitised it and edited it marrying it together with some photos from the local archive group’s collection, added subtitles and found appropriate, public domain (not in copyright) music which I dubbed in. The result was uploaded to my YouTube account and shared with the Archive groups Facebook Community as well as embeded on their main website. From an old VHS cassette to world wide distribution within a few hours!
Video is becoming more popular as access to fast internet connection increases and I’d be happy to undertake similar projects for other customers.
The 2018 North Walsham and District Community Archive calendar has been delivered to my office from the printers today and looks lovely as always. This is the third year I have had the privilege to produce the calendar which has become a well loved and integral part of the town. We had lots of support from local businesses sponsoring the production and many calendars pre-ordered. A real community project.
