Skelmersdale Heritage Society is delighted to announce a £500 grant from West Lancashire Borough Council’s Community Chest. The money is to be used to purchase printing and scanning equipment and a set of display boards for use at events. This new equipment will greatly facilitate the archive of photographs, documents and film footage which the society is currently organising.
While unable to hold meetings or events, at present, the society remains active with a lively Facebook page, a regular members’ newsletter and podcast interviews with Skemmers old and new. We hope to resume regular meetings at the Wardens club when possible and we expect to have a website up and running in the near future.
Membership currently costs just £5 annually. New members are welcome and may contact us for an application form. We are also actively seeking items to add to the town archive, so if you have any documents, photos or film footage you are willing to share please let us know. Find us on Facebook, email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone Carol Fenlon 07748244711.
