PHOTOGRAPHS taken over the last century in Sealand will be on display in a three-day exhibition.

‘A One Hundred Year Snapshot of Sealand’ will take place at St Bartholomew’s Church, Old Sealand Road between 10am and 6pm on Friday to Sunday.

The event will be the first in a series of themed events taking place over the next four years to mark the contributions made by the people of Sealand towards world peace.

Church warden Jennifer Watson said: “The four-year project is aimed at raising an awareness of the heritage of Sealand among the residents.

“It will involve the bringing together of local resident volunteers, neighbours and friends during a series of informal coffee morning type events to talk about the ‘old days’ and to become reacquainted with our common heritage.

“Sealand has changed dramatically during the last 100 years and few of the newer residents are aware of its origins,” she added.

“This week’s exhibition aims to address this by depicting the history of Sealand through the use of maps, pictures and local family history.”

Organisers are still urging residents to come forward with their own photographs or if they would like to get involved in any other ways.

If you would like to be involved in this project, or have a story to tell or photographs that can be used, please contact Jennifer Watson at
