Latest news from the North Walsham and District Community Archive.
Just a little update. The current 'lock down' has enabled me to crack on with the Fred Mace book. I've had lots of input and help and I'm almost there with the final files for the printers. Obviously the print will be subject to lock down restrictions too so it may be a little while yet but I wanted everybody to know it's very definitely on it's way. Over 250 photos in a 144 page, A5 book spanning over 40 years (1940s to 1980s) and covering most of the town, professionally photographed by Fred Mace and compiled by the archive group over the last 10+ years, professional compiled and artworked by yours truly and (very soon) professionally printed and bound by Barnwell Printers all for a no-nonsense £10.
