Docking Heritage Group secretary Helena Aldis said: “The fair will give all of us the chance to share information. It helps us make lots of connections and is also a forum for exchanging ideas such as sources of funding.”

Visitors are welcome to bring their own family documents, photographs and memories to add to the archives.
