A workshop which is part of a heritage lottery funded project gets under way today in Moorends.
The Landscape of Heroes project, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, is a part of the Isle of Axholme and Hatfield Chase Landscape Partnership (IoAHC) and is organised by the Landscape Heritage Research Foundation.
A ‘discovery day’ for people to learn all about the project takes place today at the Moorends Miners Welfare and Community Development Centre.
The project seeks to work with local people to re-discover a lost heritage of military landscapes in the area, with the aim of creating a lasting digital resource.
A spokesperson for the IoAHC said: “This discovery day will give a project introduction, overview and introduction to group members. This event will be a chance to learn about the project, look at existing research and information. It will be a chance to bring along relevant artefacts, information, personal items and photographs for discussion.”
Key speakers include Paul Schofield (IoAHC Project Manager), Professor Ian D Rotherham (LoH Project Director) and Chris Percy (LoH Project Manager).
The Discovery Day, at the Miners’ Welfare & Community Development Centre on West Road in Moorends, starts at 11.00am on Friday, 4 May.
