Documenting Life in Lockdown

East Grinstead Museum and Healthwatch West Sussex have worked together to Document Life in Lockdown, in and around East Grinstead Town and surrounding area.
Diary and a pencil

East Grinstead Museum is collecting photographs and short films of daily life, both at home and in the town, along with creative works or a short diary that have been inspired by the pandemic lockdown.  

Our aim is to capture diverse experiences - sad or joyful - and to reflect East Grinstead's diversity.
— Jonathan Parrett, East Grinstead Museum Manager

Healthwatch West Sussex is keen to understand how lockdown has affected people’s health and wellbeing.

East Grinstead Museum will be using these contributions to create an exhibition that reflects how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted life in East Grinstead and surrounding villages.

To begin this process, two questionnaires were active during March and April 2021 on both websites. One for businesses and the other for individuals. These surveys were promoted to local businesses and voluntary and community groups in the East Grinstead area.

Read our report, which highlights local peoples thoughts and experiences of Life in Lockdown.
