May 2006 – Local History Week – Exhibition

Display at RDT May 2006

We hosted a week long exhibition at the Ryde Development Trust “shop” in Union Street – the old Post Office from 23 to 27 May. Attendance was fantastic, with more than 400 people coming in to look at the maps and photographs, and to read the stories and research carried out so far.

Many of you had anecdotes and tales of your own to tell us, or photos and documents you are willing to show us. We thank all who have agreed to participate in some future interviews and opportunities to tell us your stories.

It was also an opportunity to contact likeminded individuals from other historical groups, and a strong message emerged that we need a Heritage Centre in Ryde.
