NEWS - 6th Sept. 2016

 RDCA Display at Paglesham Show: This year's Paglesham show took place on the August Bank Holiday weekend. RDCA had a display on the Saturday with the stand surrounded by people interested in the display and photos. We were given a number of contacts about memories of Ashingdon, Fambridge and Hawkwell as well as a name or two for some of Peter Thorogood's photos. Thanks to Viv Irvine and Len Bickford who were at the stand for 4 hours. Brian Pettitt, chair RDCA.

 Information Please: We have had two requests recently for information. One concerns Sutton Hall inhabitants and the other the Creeksea Ferry Hotel. If you know anything or have any photos etc then please add a post, or drop me an email at the site address opposite in Contact Us.

Hewson Osborne: The 258 photos we were given by Hadleigh from their digitisation project of more than 2000 images are now on Google Drive, here, as are the Saxby-Hill photos. This store is better for us technically than Flickr but we will be leaving the Saxby-Hill photos there as well for the time being. Here is a direct link to most of the Hewson Osborne Rochford photos on Google Drive.

Flickr: We have begun adding photographs to an external server named Flickr which will allow us to make many more photographs available. Our first batch of 46 photographs is from the collection of Samuel Saxby-Hill. Others will follow - particularly the 258 we have from the large Hewson Osborne collection of 2000+ photos and memorabilia recently digitised by Hadleigh Archive. 

 Facebook: We have taken down a Facebook page dedicated to the site due to lack of resources. However, those of you with Facebook pages can still spread the word about the site by making use of the social media links at the bottom of each article page.

 Mobile Friendly: Our site is now "mobile friendly". What this means is that you can now view it satisfactorily on smartphones and tablets. If your phone has a QR app you can access the site directly using your phone's camera - click on the QR code panel to the right for more information.

 Ron Ewers: Has anyone got anything to add to support Brian Pettitt's handful of photos he obtained from Ron. Maybe someone worked in the "market garden" or knew someone who did?
