Tameside Local Studies and Archives Centre
 

Local Studies to close from Thursday 5th November

From Thursday 5th November 2020, new government rules mean that Tameside Local Studies and Archives centre will be closed for the duration of the lockdown period. For any queries, please email: localstudies.library@tameside.gov.uk.

The service will continue to answer enquiries. You will still be able to search our online image archive, or find information about the Archives and ongoing projects on our blog. You can also follow the progress of our SMILE! Project here. For updates on the service, please keep an eye on our webpage as well as our Twitter account: @tmbc_culture.

We are also still keen to document your experiences of how life has changed this year, due to COVID-19 and the various adjustments that have been made in response. If you would be interested in contributing, you can find details of how you can get involved here.
