I have a very important message for readers from Chris Leggett of the Express & Star, who I’ve noted before, are staging a campaign to get their paper photo archive scanned and online for all to access.
I’m sure you’ll agree that this is a vital and wonderful project. I ask all readers to support the bid, fill out the survey and write to the paper explaining your support.
If you would like to support the project, please send a letter of support to: Chris Leggett, Brand and communications manager, Express & Star, 51-53 Queen Street, Wolverhampton WV1 1ES. Or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please take time to complete the online survey on the Express & Star’s plans to make its photo archive available digitally for free.
More than 150 people have given us their views.
We plan to close the survey at midday on Friday October 11 to pass the data to the team preparing the bid.
If you are a member of a heritage group and would like to encourage colleagues to participate, or know friends or family who might like to share their views, please forward on the link.
By working together, we hope we can make the archive accessible for all.
Thank you again for your support.
