Telling your stories - Inner West COVID-19

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Council's Library and History Services is collating a COVID-19 community archive of stories, anecdotes, artworks and images from Inner West citizens.

Contemporary accounts by everyday people will help future historians make sense of this major life event.

The archive will act as a 'snapshot' of the Inner West in lockdown - what it was like, how our world changed and how people were affected.

Contributions closed on 31 May 2020. We are currently collating the contributions ready for judging. The 40 best contributions will win a $50 Visa debit card. See the Terms and Conditions for details.

    Exercising during Covid-19

    by by Patricia O’Brien, 4 months ago

    Exercising during Covid-19

    “As the Hannaford Centre closed, I decided to incorporate some exercises from my Circuit Training class into a home session. I videoed my husband ‘skating’. Despite his Irish/Welsh ancestry, he has no sense of rhythm. There is still plenty of laughter in lockdown.”
