About Us

The Canvey Community Archive (CCA)

The Canvey Community Archive group was formed in 2006 in partnership with Essex County Council Libraries, The Essex Record Office, East of England Museums, and the Libraries and Archives Council. It is run by the people of Canvey.

We take the form of an internet site, so that its content is available from home computers and the People's Network in Libraries around the county.

Our aim is to gather memories as well as copying photographs and other documents that relate to the history of the Island. Canvey residents are being asked to share their memories and photographs of life on the island.

The website went live in 2008 with the help of a National Lottery Grant.

If you wish to help us, please email cca@canveyisland.org. You can also ask about us in Canvey Library.
