THE EXPERIENCES of local people during the pandemic are being captured by Heritage and Culture Warwickshire.

And the long-term project is one the community can get involved in.

Staff are asking people to get in touch with suggestions of items they should collect, particular stories of importance and items which encapsulate the experience of coronavirus.

Warwickshire County Council heritage spokeswoman Heather Timms said: “The Covid-19 pandemic will be a time in history Warwickshire will look back on and this project is about collecting history as it is unfolding, in a sensitive and respectful way.

“Heritage and Culture Warwickshire want to preserve the artefacts, stories and experiences of historically important moments for future generations.

“We usually think of museums as being places with historic objects in displays, but right now there is a chance to get people’s impressions of this time in history in the moment, in a safe and considered way, and we welcome individuals’ contributions to how we do this.”
