Day-to-day events have always been reported in local newspapers. Such events reflect life in the town, current fads, trends and what impacts peoples lives.  If you groups and sequence these stories you can build a picture of what life was like for past Redditch residents.

The History in Print project has been using both physical Newspapers and on-line archives of old newspapers to do just that.  This site collects together that research and presents a view of life in Redditch over the years by subjects and topics within those subjects

As well as using on-line sources for the information presented on this site, we are also collecting edition of old Redditch Newspapers for our archives.

If you have old editions that you are willing to donate, or even allow us to copy, please get in touch.
