About

Co-founder of Our Town Story. If you have any questions about the site, or wish to provide feedback, please visit the Admin forum and post in the appropriate place - we'll do our best to help you out as quickly as we can!

We really want Our Town Story to be an album for your old photos, to fill in the gaps in the history books of our villages, towns and cities. We would also love for those pictures to be able to help others - for instance by using reminiscence therapy in treating dementia

We're still a work in progress, and we appreciate all suggestions and observations!

Shared an update: @theresahrgs Lovely to meet you at the Hub the other day and see what you are all up to in Sittingbourne! I see you've added a picture, so you've navigated that bit of the process successfully!

To add a title, description and to locate it on the map, you'll need to go to the image in the gallery in your user profile and look for the 'cog' icon. Just update the info and place it on the map, and it will automatically appear on the Sittingbourne page!

Any issues, just reply to this comment, or post a note in the admin forums - link on the home page..... :)
