Images of Faversham in the year of the Plague

2020 will be an exceptional year in our town's history and the Faversham Society is keen to create a photographic archive to record the year. We are looking for photo-journalism and writing which gives a flavour of what Covid-19 was like for the town and for people who live here.

If you would like your photographs to appear here, or if you have a piece of writing to share, please images and text to chair@favershamsociety.info
