We are excited to announce the launch of The Florrie Digital Archive. We have a rich collection of written histories, photographs, film and audio for you to explore, and we hope that you will enjoy sharing and celebrating our history.
Head to the Annual Reports & Newsletters page to read through extracts from our large collection that dates all the way back to The Florence Institute’s very first annual meeting in 1890.
The Interactive Archive is a collection of photo, film & audio galleries that will take you straight to the heart of The Florrie – its people. Watch interviews with Florrie Old Boys, listen to stories from The Florrie’s past & explore our collection of photographs.
Our Hall of Fame shares the stories of the people who made The Florrie, and the people who The Florrie helped to make. From Florence Hall, who inspired the creation of the Institute, to Florrie Old Boys, you’ll find much to celebrate about the role of The Florrie in the lives of our famous faces.
As a ‘living archive’ we are committed to adding new discoveries to the Florrie story, so while you’re here please be sure to visit our Digital Visitor’s Book and share your Florrie memories!
Thank you to everyone who has, and continues to, contribute to this archive. Thank you to John Hussey and Jill Drower for permission to share their research into the Hall and Cunningham families. Special thanks to the team at Heritage Lottery Fund NW who have once again supported The Florrie, honoured our heritage and invested in our future.
We plan to hold a physical launch of the archive in the very near future showcasing our full range of artefacts and documents.
The Florrie staff team, volunteers and Trustees.
