Introducing: The Plymouth Argyle Heritage Archive
ARGYLE are going back to the future on Spring Bank Holiday weekend.
Home Park is hosting an exhibition of club memorabilia in the Tribute Lounge at the Theatre of Greens, featuring a wide variety of Argyle artefacts from the Pilgrims’ past.
The exhibition, which is open to the public between 10am-2pm on Saturday and Sunday, May 27-28, is the first venture for the newly-formed Plymouth Argyle Heritage Archive, a volunteer-run not-for-profit body dedicated to preserving and promoting the heritage of the club.
PAHA is launching the exhibition on Friday, May 26, when specially invited guests will have the opportunity to hear from venerated former long-serving Argyle secretary Graham Little, who has loaned his extensive collection of photographs – many never before seen – to the event.
Also on display for the first time are rare items bequeathed to Argyle by the family of supporter Mike Pengelly, who died earlier this season.
The Plymouth Argyle Heritage Archive has been formed by enthusiastic fans, in partnership with the Pilgrims, to promote cooperation between fans and the club, and safeguard memorabilia and other items of historical interest for the enjoyment of generations to come.
Its objectives are to acquire, preserve, maintain and display memorabilia and other artifacts associated with Argyle, and to research, collect, collate and archive facts, documents or other materials of educational, artistic and/or historical value, which they will make available in the public domain.
PAHA would very much like to hear from those with a keen interest in Argyle’s history and heritage, especially those who may have a rare and interesting item; memories to share; skills to offer; or time to spare.
PAHA can be contacted via Home Park or through their website, www.argylearchive.org.uk.
