Do you have family stories, photographs or memorabilia associated with past international, national county or local sporting activities and connected to the NW Kent area? If so the NWKFHS would like to consider them for publication. Winning Endeavours- images relating to the 1908 and 1948 London and South East of England's Olympic past. Gladys Eveline Hodges born 1892, Tunbridge, Kent.

Your help is needed with the North West Kent Family History Society’s Journal!
To reflect this Olympic year,  I would like to include articles about your sporting ancestors in the June and September issues of the Journal. As a Charity we are unable to offer payment for articles but if you wish to share your story I would be happy to consider it.

During your own researches you might have found some stories, photographs or memorabilia associated with past international, national county or local sporting activities and connected to the NW  Kent area. Whilst I would love to hear about local past Olympians, I am equally happy to celebrate any achievements that fit under the broad banner of sports.

Articles from 100-1000 words welcome. If you need guidance about how we can reproduce old photographs, medals, certificates, etc in the Journal do make contact.  Digital images should be high quality jpegs. Please do not send original material to me at Editor NWKFHS.
I look forward to hearing from you.

Winning Endeavours- images relating to the 1908 and 1948 London and South East of England's Olympic past.

The Olympic Games of 1908 and 1948 in London were major events for not just London. Our area of North West Kent and other areas of the UK were involved with both Olympics. 25 archive repositories from London and the South East of England have contributed digitised images to this site from their collections. The images show photographs, newspaper articles, minutes, reports and other archival material

Winning Endeavours  is a project carried out in collaboration with the Archives for London, London Metropolitan Archives and the British Library, as a contribution towards the 2012 Cultural Olympiad. The project is funded by the partners and by a Heritage Lottery Fund grant.
