To mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, Chippenham Museum’s after school Club is embarking on a project using the faces of 70 people from the town.

Club members who are aged 11-18 are aiming to take a photograph of someone from the community born for each year of Queen Elizabeth’s reign.

Their photographs will form an exhibition called 70 years – 70 faces, set to give a snapshot of Chippenham at the point it celebrates the milestone in which the Queen has reached.

Head of Museum and Heritage Services at Chippenham Town Council said: “Our young people have spent the last few weeks learning how to take portraits and with the help from local photographer Alun Crockford, they have set up a temporary studio and can’t wait to get started”

The Museum have said ‘many people’ have forward to being part of the project, but they are still missing many years, especially the 1970s.

Councillor Declan Baseley, Vice-Chair of the Amenities, Culture and Leisure Committee said: “If you live in Chippenham and are interested in being part of our town's commemoration, please get in touch with Chippenham Museum for more information, they’d love you to be involved with their brilliant project.”
