Delay in posting new photographs
Added on 21 December 2010 at 07:51 by Jim
Apologies to anyone who has sent photographs over the last few months, they have been received and safely stored along with the emailed information, but you will have noticed that they haven't been posted on the website yet and there is a considerable backlog which I am hoping to work on in the next few months. The delay has been due to an ongoing dispute with my service provider (TalkTalk) and a fault which took nearly seven months to rectify (a simple 15 minute visit from an engineer!). I have even involved Trading Standards, OFCOM and my MP, and I am pressing for this company's license to trade to be revoked.....it's that serious! Anyway, hopefully all will be back to normal before too much longer, and in the meantime, a very happy Christmas and here's wishing you a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year when that arrives.

Apologies for the delay in adding photographs

Just a brief note to apologise for the delay in adding new photographs, either sent by email or left at Alford Heritage Centre for scanning, I'm having a few problems with my rather old but, until now, fairly reliable computer. Like me, it's having a few problems with its memory, so until I can sort this out a bit of a log jam has built up......doh!
Photograph Weekend at Alford Heritage Centre and Museum
Added on 29 July 2009 at 16:22 by Jim
On the weekend of 29th and 30th of August 2009 there will be an opportunity for anyone with old photographs of Alford and the surrounding area to bring them along to Alford Heritage Centre and Museum and have them scanned and the details permanently recorded for storage at the Heritage Centre and for inclusion on this website. This opportunity might be particularly useful for anyone without extensive access to a computer and a scanner who has interesting and precious photographs which they are prepared to share but unwilling to let out of their sight. You can then rest assured that your precious photographs and memories will be recorded for the benefit of future generations.
