A LOOK BACK AT 2020

We know 2020 was a tough one for most people, but 2020 has also been a year where the people of Watford have shown incredible community spirit.

Working with Watford Council and Mayor Peter Taylor we are creating a digital archive to commemorate all the high points of the year. Whether it be examples of residents going far and beyond to support people in their community, acts of kindness by neighbours or just something that put a smile on your face in 2020.

If you have any pictures from the year that you will look back on fondly, please send them to Museum Curator Sarah Priestley: sarah.priestley@watford.gov.uk so they can be included in the museum’s 2020 Digital Archive.
