Soham Winter Fayre – (TBC) As last years event was cancelled due to covid, we are holding back on planning until May 2021, to see how things progress. All our fingers are crossed in the hope that we can stage this hugely popular town event with St Andrew’s Church as always. We are also hoping that The Friends of Soham Village College will be a part of the team moving forward.
Soham in Lockdown
We (St Andrews Church and Soham Heritage and Tourism Group) are still intending to hold a ‘Soham in Lockdown’ exhibition in the future. Unfortunately due to the present rules we will not be able to hold the exhibition until later in the year.
So we are appealing to everyone to make a record of what they were up to during lockdowns 1, 2 and 3 and over the summer when the rules were relaxed a bit, we want to hear about what you did; how you managed home schooling; what it was like working from home; what new skills you have learned; and anything else you did to pass the time. We are also very aware of the highs and lows and the sadness. We would be pleased to hear your memories of those you have lost. We are happy to have writing, pictures, poems, diaries short videos taken with phone or anything else.
Please send your contributions to this email address [email protected]. If you cannot send emails please keep your contributions safe and once conditions allow we will arrange some collections points around town.
But please remember, we want to hear from everyone, old or young! Everyone’s experiences are of interest for future generations.
