Find Your Place in Local History classes

  • 11th December 2012

Are you interested in researching the history of your town, village, house, school, church or local industry?

We will be running the popular Find Your Place in Local History class next year after a break for a couple of years for our move. Led by Dr Pat Hughes, the group will meet in the Explore the Past area of The Hive on Thursday evenings. Pat has led research classes for many years and will guide and advise about sources and next steps, whilst you’ll have the Archive resources available to use.

Over the years many people have taken part in the group and studied many different topics. It is up to you and whatever interests you. If you would like to discuss ideas you can ring Pat on 01905 424892. Although everyone is doing their own topic there is a community feel and members encourage one another and take an interest in each others work.

It is hoped to start the group, which will run for 10 weeks, in January 2013, on Thursday evenings 7:30-9:30. The cost will be approximately £75 depending on numbers.

If you are interested or would like to know more please email explorethepast@worcestershire.gov.uk
