Creating Heritage

Dear Sandgate Society Members

Now we are allowed a bit more freedom, we wonder if you were able to help us?

These may be very difficult times, but we are living through history –the history of Sandgate.

The Committee and Archives Team feel it is important that this period is recorded for posterity with as many photographs as possible to record our village during this time.

Would you like to contribute to our effort and send in some photographs – rainbows in windows, deserted streets, closed shops, social distance street parties, people singing from balconies, Thursday night clapping for the NHS – whatever you can find?

So we can share them, we will publish them on our website and will have a People’s Vote on the best one.  The winning photograph could be enlarged onto canvas and hung in a public place – maybe the Chichester Hall, the Library or the Old Fire Station.

And if we had enough photos, we could even consider a calendar, maybe notelets – who knows where this may lead?

Please let us know if you would like to join our effort to record history for future Sandgate generations, and have a bit of fun at the same time?

Please send them in jpeg format to   We will aim to put 1 or 2 photos on the Photo Gallery from each contributor; if you wish to send in more, feel free, but we may need to use our editing rights to publish a limited number depending on the number received.

So, please get snapping and we look forward to Creating the Heritage of Sandgate together.

Best wishes

The Events Team
