A group which collects and preserves archives and historical documents to record the local area’s history has asked for help from surrounding parishes.

The Sudbury Ephemera Archive aims to preserve paper items and documents that tell future students, researchers and historians about life in Sudbury.

One of the group’s roles is to annually report for the Suffolk Local History Council (SLHC) about what has taken place or changed each year.

Sue Tibbetts, chairman of the Sudbury Ephemera Archive, said: “For us the advantage of doing this as a group is that we can put our heads together and hope to cover as wide a view of the town as possible.

“SLHC aims to have recorders in every parish, sadly this is not the case but Long Melford and Little Waldingfield have recorders.”

The hope is that individuals or groups from other parishes will get in touch and work with the ephemera group to discuss what has taken place and changed in their parish.

Mrs Tibbetts said the overall aim was to have a recorder in each parish.
