This corona life

A RECORD of life during the coronavirus crisis is being made by Dumfries Museum.

They are working with The University of Edinburgh’s ethnology programme to build historic records of what life is like just now in Dumfries and Galloway.
And they are keen to receive submissions and contributions from people across the region detailing their activities during lockdown, especially photos showing homeschooling, volunteering and working in frontline services.
A spokesman said: “The project aims to capture the mood of a nation so that people in the future can know what it was like.”
Pictures should be sent to dumfriesmuseum@dumgal.gov.uk and should be no larger than 3MB in size.
For further information about the project and instructions on how to also submit video or audio files please visit https://edin.ac/2yn8yMc

MAGGIE Thatcher was still running the UK, Maria McKee was top of the charts, Scotland beat England at rugby and a cancer charity held their first ever coffee morning back in September 1990. Since then, every year thousands of people have tucked into cakes and enjoyed a cuppa with pals, neighbours and strangers, raising millions of pounds to fund support Macmillan Cancer Care in their work to help people with cancer. Here, we look back on 30 years of coffee mornings across the region which have raised tens of thousands of pounds and helped countless cancer sufferers and their families.
