We are looking to sympathetically display some of the amazing work done on the archive and the stories of Brading’s history in and around the church. We would like for it to reflect the skills and artistry of local people and be accessible to families and visitors and so we need as many people as possible to have an input, from Historians, to young people, to small people.
