Elstree & Borehamwood Town Council

Living History Project

The Youth Council of Elstree & Borehamwood has invited schools in the Borough to take part in a living history project to create a permanent record of what it has been like for young people to live through the pandemic.

Youth Councillors are hoping that this will form an exciting project that allows young people to express their feelings during these strange times as well as to learn what techniques people developed to cope with changes to the way we have all been living. 

The responses will be collated in partnership with the Museums and Heritage Officer for Hertsmere to become small exhibitions in our local museums.

The brief is to allow students to write a short statement that answers questions such as:

  • Were there any things that you particularly liked/disliked about lockdown?
  • How did you find coping with online lessons / home-schooling?
  • Did you learn more about yourself as a person during lockdown?
  • Did you find that you had more time to enjoy yourself?
  • Did you/your family celebrate any milestones during lockdown and how was these different to usual?
  • Did you encounter any difficulties during lockdown and through the pandemic so far?

Of course, students are more than welcome to write about anything that they feel would be interesting for the community to hear about.

To take part, please contact:
