People in the Saxmundham area are being asked to share their memories of Covid-19 lockdown, to make an archive for future generations.

Richard Crisp, one of the museum’s founders, said: “This is one of the most extraordinary years any of us will ever know.

“It’s important to make a record of what lockdown was really like in Saxmundham and the surrounding villages.”
