Whitehill Online is planning over the coming months to develop a free local community history portal, which features photographs and stories from the years gone by. There is currently no offering like this in the Kidsgrove area and is a feature that many visitors have asked about and suggested. Staffordshire County Councillor and local resident Mary Maxfield has kindly started to produce a new feature Whitehill Yesteryear, which will be updated to contain articles and features looking back at how Whitehill and Kidsgrove have changed over the years.
We would like to gather together a large and free online portal of old photographs from around the area. To make this happen, we really need the help of Kidsgrove residents. If you have old photographs of the area, or know of a fellow resident who may have pictures they are willing to share, then I (Bob Richards) would love to hear from them. If they could contact me using the online contact form on the website initially, then I will be in touch with all the details to make this happen. Alternatively, I'm sure that Councillor Mary Maxfield would be only too happy to hear from you.
This online collection is only possible with the help of local residents and ensures that everyone can share in the memories of how the area has changed. We have no age requirements on the images, with all welcome.
I hope you can help us to make this Whitehill and Kidsgrove free online community history portal possible.
