Recording life in Portsmouth during the coronavirus epidemic


Portsmouth's museum and archive collections tell the story of the city and its people. They want to make sure that their collections include our reactions and responses to the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic.

They want to include objects or documents that will tell the personal stories of our experiences for future generations.

The coronavirus outbreak is such a major event, everyone in the city has been affected - whether you've had the virus, are a key worker, working from home, home schooling, shielding finding ways to pass the time during lockdown.  These are the stories we want to collect.

Maybe you're keeping a diary, or have taken up a new hobby, started a support group, put a rainbow in your window, or recorded your street's clap for carers.

You can send them photographs, pictures, copies of documents, video and audio files by email: collecting.covid@portsmouthcc.gov.uk.
