The way we were
The Way We Were -
Do you have any old (pre 1980) photos of
Strood lying around? We'd love you to share them with us.
It’s amazing how much an area can change, and
sometimes you don’t notice. We’re hoping that people who live and
work in Strood, or whose families are from the area, will have old
photographs they could share that will help show how the area has
developed over the decades. And you could win a family ticket to
Rochester Castle worth £16.80.
We'd really like to see your vintage images of
Strood, the buildings, streets, leisure and work places. Have a
look now in your old photo albums, the pile of 'things' that need
sorting out, or behind the clock! We are looking for any pictures
of the people and places that make Strood special, if you have any
pictures that have stories behind them, or are significant to you,
we'd love you to share them on our Facebook Event page.
All you have to do to enter the
competition is post a picture and a short description to our
Facebook Event page before the closing date of Sunday, 4 June 2017,
and you could be in with a chance of winning. The prize is a family
ticket to Rochester Castle, (which at approximately 900 years old,
definitely counts as old!).
Even if you don’t have any pictures, why
not take a look at our event page and see if any pictures stir
some of your own memories.
How to enter
The winning entry will be the image that the
