Digital Archive

Starting with the creation of this website, we aim to get our collection of images, documents and audio files converted to a digital format and stored online for everyone to access. We recently purchased Community Chest archiving software and are currently cataloguing and scanning many of the documents we have to make them accessible via the Community Chest database. We are always keen to accept new material for our archives either as the original or as a digital copy.
