How to add a page to this site

By Simon Mortimer

Adding your words and pictures

Lots of the pages on this site have been added by members of the public. If you have something to share we’d love to hear from you. You can contribute your words and photos to this site instantly. You’ll be guided through the process by simple on-screen instructions and it only takes a few minutes.

It’s a great way to share your own stories, memories, pictures and research with the rest of the world.

So what could you add?

  • an old photo of people or places in Stevenage
  • a new photo recording some aspect of the county today
  • memories of life in Stevenage
  • information about some aspect of the county

It’s entirely up to you what you add.  Your memory can be of an event you attended last week or something that happened years ago. If you are unsure, look round this site to see what other people have added. Most people just add one photo or one paragraph of text, while others add whole photo galleries.  In order to give a well rounded picture of the county, we also welcome contributions from historians and local history societies.

It’s so easy!

  • You can use our easy contribution form right now to send us your words and pictures
  • When you’re happy, you press a button to submit your words and photos to our editors for publishing.
  • Our volunteer editors usually take a couple of days to add your pages to the website
  • If you like, you can also register on the site when you contribute.  This means we can send you an e-mail  when your article goes live.

Why do I need to give my e-mail address?

We keep your details in case the editors need to contact you, e.g. they might need to check something about your page before it goes on the main site. Your e-mail address will not be publicly available on the site and we will not pass it on to anyone else without your permission. You can read more about our privacy policy here.

Terms and conditions

  • Text submitted to the site may be sub-edited for the sake of clarity or readability.
  • Images submitted to the site may be cropped or digitally enhanced (for example, to improve contrast).
  • Our Stevenage is under no obligation to publish any text or photos submitted to the site.
  • Our Stevenage may reject material on the grounds of copyright infringement, offensiveness or other legal considerations.
  • Our Stevenage cannot accept contributions of a commercial, marketing or advertising nature. We will, however, accept editorial content from commercial organisations (for example, the memories of a shop-owner).

Any questions?

Do you need any help with the material you’re thinking of adding? Do you need help with writing your story, or help with publishing it to the site?  Please contact us.

  • I have been trying to contact an old friend that I met in 1957 Her name is Irene Ford (maiden name) she worked in O block, English Electric Co., Gunnels Wood Rd., Stevenage. A lot of people worked in that office block and it’s a long time ago but I am just hoping someone will remember her and leave a message here or with the Editor Please help.
