From the Trenches to Tendring is a Heritage Lottery Funded project, run by the Friends of Jaywick Martello Tower, with support from Essex County Council and Tendring District Council.
Volunteers are researching private collections in the Tendring District, and putting together a digital archive of these materials in order that the general public have access to these important pieces of social history. There are roadshows, a tea dance and an exhibition. More information can be found on their blog post.
If you would like to be involved in the project, please contact them by email: firstname.lastname@example.org and see the From the Trenches to Tendring project blog.
Also look out for them on Twitter @TrenchTendring or on Facebook.
