The Chipperfield Archive

2nd of November 2003

For some years Terry Simmonds has been putting together a collection of artifacts and ephemera which reflect the history of our village. Ephemera is described as anything which lasts for only a short time, usually printed or handwritten items which are thrown away. Such items are important to historians, particularly those studying local history. The collection is far from complete and Terry would appreciate it if any reader has any of the following items they could donate to the collection: • Posters, tickets and programmes for village events, dances, cricket and football functions; • Old parish magazines and items which relate to the village churches; • Items relating to Chipperfield Horticultural Society; • Tradesmens bills, for example from Lawrence (the grocer), Wingfield (the butcher), George (the draper), Hawes Dairy, etc.
• Memorabilia of Chipperfield School;
• Items about the history of Waterhouse builders;
• Any objects bearing the nane Chipperfield (such as milk bottles); • World War 2 items such as photographs of the local Home Guard, ration books, documents, etc.
• Postcards of old Chipperfield.
Photographs and documents which are particularly treasures can be copied and the originals returned to their owners. Terry would also be pleased to hear about ephemera relating to our neighbours Sarratt, Bovingdon and Kings Langley. Do find time to have a look to see if you have anything to contribute and give Terry a ring on 01923 267329 or see him at Garden Scene.
