Event - Dungworth Local History Project

Local History Project Inaugural meeting Wednesday, 14 November 2012 2pm at Dungworth Village Hall

If you are interested in local history and would like to help commemorate the centenary of the First World War, or find out more about the lives of local people during this or any time, please come along to the meeting or telephone 2341243 for further information.

We can obtain a grant to help us.

We can do any or all of the following:-

Set up a ‘heritage group’ to begin research into local and or ‘family’ history, identify previous occupants of houses, take trips to the Sheffield Archives to look at records such as school log books, or collect photographs or other memorabilia. We could add information to the previous Dungworth ‘Walk into History’ book and get this re-published or updated. We could focus on the lives of people in this area during the war to find out how they contributed to the war effort through the ‘home front’ and their protected occupations, rather than fighting overseas, involving and passing on memories to children to help them

learn about life in the village up until and during WWI.
