Recording the Coronavirus

The archive service is looking to create a record of these unprecedented times but we need your help.

Are you a diary keeper or would you like to be? Be it written, audio or video we are looking for people to record their thoughts, experiences and feelings during the current pandemic.

Do it the old fashioned way with pen and paper, record a short piece on your mobile every day or if you love seeing yourself on camera record a video diary.

However you do it your contribution is invaluable to creating a picture of the pandemic in East Lothian.

None of the contributions need to be epic. They can be as short or as long as you want. They can cover any aspect of life from how you are feeling, thoughts on the government response to the pandemic to how you are keeping yourself entertained.

All contributions will be treated with care and sensitivity. If you would prefer your diary to be closed for a period of time or anonymised then this can be arranged

We are living through a period of extraordinary history and you can help capture it for future generations.
