Information about the aims of the Our Town Project

By Laura Matthews

The Our Town Project was funded bythe Renaissance in the Regions programme and involved local people in creating a Community Archive, recording memories and experiences of living and working in Great Yarmouth over the last 60 years.

The Our Great Yarmouth website was created to share some of the pictures and memories gathered during the project. We would like people to contribute information and photographs about their memories of Great Yarmouth sparked by the material already on the site. The information provided will be edited by our team of volunteers and uploaded onto the site for everyone to share.

I'm trying to find any information on the Mayor Robert Nudd who was in service in 1905 but died at the end of that year. I have only found 1 photo which is held in Norfolk County council.
