Memory Bank Introduction / FAQ

What is the Memory Bank?

The Chagford Memory Bank is a set of online forums where people can post their memories about life in Chagford and the surrounding area. These memories can be about the recent past or the distant past. We are interested in gathering lots of different perspectives on how Chagford has changed and continues to change.

The Memory Bank is organised into a series of strands or forums about different aspects of life in and about Chagford. Within each strand (or forum) it is possible to comment on an existing thread of posts about a topic OR create a new thread (topic).

Why did it ask me to login twice?

Unfortunately when logging in you may be asked to log in twice, the second screen with a WordPress logo. This is a quirk of the system and does not mean the login details you provided were incorrect – just reuse the same details on the second screen (probably your browser will remember these). If you are not taken to the forums please navigate there using the menu by going to Memory Bank / Forums.
