Tell your story

We invite you to make a contribution to this website or to the Society’s Archive.    To contribution to this website please send us your photographs, memories, stories or historical information about Christchurch and its Environs using the on-line form below.    Our Editors will check your contribution and contact you as soon as possible.      If you have a donation of archival material that you would like to make to the Christchurch History Society, or something you would like to loan to the Society, so that it will be made available to the community please email us.

What content are we looking for?

We are interested in anything to do with Christchurch and its Environs, past and present that preserves the history of the area and makes the knowledge available to researchers whether they are local, national or international.    It could be :-

  • an old photograph,
  • an old document that is of general interest,
  • a new image, recording something about the area today,
  • memories, either written or audio or visual, of life in the area,
  • information about some aspect of the area,

Some contributors send a paragraph or two of text and a photograph.   Others send a whole photograph gallery, whilst others have donated a complete set of archival material that they have collected in their lifetime.      Christchurch History Society will wish to record all acquisitions, whether a donation or a loan, to ensure no misunderstandings in the future but cannot accept contributions which are commercial, marketing or advertising unless they relate to historic records such as memories of a professional or trade person.   If in doubt please contact us to discuss your contribution and wishes.
