A series of study days and workshops to help you nurture your interest in Local History. The sessions will bring together a mix of speakers with hands on experience of their own projects and research, together with practical have-a-go and discussion sessions.
‘What makes a local history project?’
13 June 2015. This session focused on helping you to plan, design and run your own local history project and identify future skills building sessions you might need.
‘Who collects what and why?”
19 March 2016 The theme for this half-day session was Caring for Collections. This was one of the most requested items at our first session where members asked: Should we actively collect objects and archive material and if our group does decide to collect how should we care for them?
