leave a comment »

As the height of summer nears, a website dedicated to the history of Wales and its people is calling for people to share their holiday stories from popular destinations across the country.

Blaenau Gwent visitors and locals alike are being urged to share their memories and photographs online at People’s Collection Wales.

The bilingual website is dedicated to sharing the history and experience of Wales and its people with the world. Nearly 30,000 items – from old photographs to video stories – can be found there.

Rheinallt Ffoster-Jones of People’s Collection Wales said: “Wales is an area of outstanding natural beauty recognised throughout the world. Photographs could highlight not only changes in the type of visitors, recreational activities and types of businesses, but economic change, culture and attitudes.”

For more information or to upload your items to the People’s Collection Wales visit the website www.peoplescollectionwales.co.uk

The People’s Collection Wales website is run by Digital Heritage in the Community – an initiative supported by Communities 2.0.
