Derbyshire County Council need help with Jubilee Celebrations

Derbyshire County Council is mounting an exhibition called Sixty Glorious Years to mark Queen Elizabeth’s long reign.

It will highlight important events and local people’s stories over the decades as well as feature objects reflecting how Derbyshire has changed.

The authority would now like to hear from anyone willing to share their memories of an interesting event in their town, or a story about a significant event in their life or family, since 1952.

Exhibition organisers are interested in anything that has happened to you, your family or your community in the last 60 years that you would like to share with visitors to the exhibition.

The exhibition is due to go on display at Buxton Museum and Art Gallery on Saturday 28th April and runs until Wednesday 13th June to give people plenty of time to see it. Entry is free.

My memories would focus on: 70’s – power cuts strikes and recession. 80’s – strikes, Falkland War, Gulf War and Poll tax riots. 90’s – recession, cost of living increasing rapidly, New Labour. Noughties – Gulf War again, Afghanistan, record petrol prices, bankruptcy, corruption, end of New Labour and more rioting.

Should be a good exhibition.
