Get involved

You can of course just attend one or more of our talks. But we're also keen to attract people who might have an interest in a topic or be keen to learn new skills in exploring something relating to the history of our area.

Skills might include:

  • Carrying out oral history interviews

  • Taking photographs of buildings

  • Tracking down old photographs

  • Using the internet either at home or in a library to look at the census and other sources

  • Looking at sources in the library eg trade directories for the history of the shops

  • Using old maps

  • Organising a display

Please let us know if you would like to do more by contacting us on 01904 466086 or emailing us here
