All Saints volunteer archivists hard at work

Three volunteer members of All Saints are busy most Wednesdays sorting through the huge volume of old papers and records which have accumulated over the years; such as Parochial Church Council minutes going back to the 1950s and many other items of potential interest to future researchers. They are being given expert guidance by the Berkshire County Archivist, Dr Peter Durrant. Recently two of the team spent an afternoon at the Berkshire County Record Office where Dr Durrant was able to be updated on the progress of the project and give useful advice. Shirley Colwill, one of the team said; ” The ideal is not only to put past papers in order in storage which will prevent their further deterioration, but to create a system which can be eaily referred to and updated”.
