The Cricket Derbyshire Foundation (Registered Charity No. 1155801) is scouring the county in search of photographic collections to add to the recently-launched Proud to be Derbyshire Heritage Project archive.
As part of the next phase of the landmark project, Cricket Derbyshire is asking members of the public to come forward and share images of the County Club as the process of building a pictorial archive begins.
The project, which is due to be complete in December 2015, will create a photographic archive celebrating the heritage of Derbyshire County Cricket Club and will bring together over 1,500 images.
As well as a permanent archive at The 3aaa County Ground, the project will also produce an extensive online resource to be accessible to all.
The Foundation is now appealing to members of the public to come forward with any photographic collections that will contribute to the archive. Furthermore, the Foundation will be holding Collection Days at cricket clubs across the county; full dates to be announced soon.
Cricket Derbyshire Director of Partnerships, Ryan Duckett said: “We want Members, supporters and members of the local community to play their part in this landmark heritage project.
“All images that represent cricket in the county of Derbyshire will be greatly appreciated and will be considered for both the physical and online archive, with the latter accessible to all.
“The project will inspire, safeguard and promote the heritage of Derbyshire County Cricket Club and its intrinsic links with people across the county.
“It will also offer learning and volunteering opportunities as well as encouraging generations to share memories and better understand the heritage of cricket and the county.”
