Send in your sporty pictures of Life in Lockdown

Date published: 10 July 2020

Oldham Council is currently working on a project called 'Oldham's Lockdown Museum', a digital project to record how life has changed in the town during the pandemic.

The idea is that the Council can then connect with people who might be feeling lonely or isolated at home, but also create an archive for future generations to understand a little about what Oldham life was like during the pandemic of 2020.

Each week the Council will set a theme to encourage people to send in photos and they will then be published the following week in a gallery on the Council website.

This week's theme is 'Sport and Exercise' and Oldham RLFC has been asked to help and to take part.

Ideally, the Council would like photos to be with them by this coming Monday morning, July 13, so the club is asking fans to send in their pictures of 'Life in Lockdown', with a sport and exercise theme, to  the club so that it can send them off to the Council en bloc in order to meet their Monday morning request.

Fans are asked to upload pictures by 5pm this Sunday (July 12) to the club's email address:

The club will then do the rest and thus play its part, as the borough's professional rugby league club, in helping the Council to make a huge success of its 'Lockdown Museum' project.
