We’re looking for older people to be part of a new oral history project by King's College London called Weathering Identity.

Weathering Identity will record people’s memories of weather in #Essex and will explore the relationship between weather and sense of place and identity. The project is run through the departments of Geography and Culture, Media & Creative Industries (CMCI) and is a collaboration with artist Inés Cámara Leret.

The histories will also be recorded in the The Essex Record Office Essex Archives and will be used to inform an artwork on weather, memory and identity in Essex.

People will be interviewed virtually using the digital tools available.

If you know of anyone who may be interested in being part of history, please comment below!

We've been getting such amazing feedback about our Alcove Video Carephone roll-out in Essex.

Essex County Council is providing Video Carephones to local people, to help them stay connected and to reduce feelings of loneliness.

The Video Carephone is like a telephone with a video screen – to help you see and speak to friends and family through a secure line.

It is very easy to use and we can help you set it up.

Video calling is a great way to chat with others rather than just a phone call, because it lets you see the person you’re talking to, and they can see you.

If you know someone who would benefit from a Carephone, especially those with limited or no tech experience, please email erctd@essex.gov.uk
