HLF Project – Update

Touchstones Session – Saturday 3rd February

We have our RMNF session at Touchstones this coming Saturday from 12.30pm.  Janet Byrne (Local Studies Supervisor) is going to collate information on Rooley Moor, Greenbooth and Healey Dell to show us, and is going to guide us through the process of researching our particular areas of interest.

So that we can manage expectations at Touchstones please let us know if you will or will not be there (email: info@rmnf.org.uk).  This is a great opportunity (financed by our HLF grant) to get involved, and we will be able to take copies and make return visits as we need. The agenda is very flexible, we expect the session will last a couple of hours and people will be able to come and go as they wish.

If you are coming, we suggest having a think beforehand about what you would like to get out of the session.  For example, some have said they would like to learn a bit more about people who lived in the area, about the naming of Rooley Moor, the cobbled road, and how the moors have been used over the years.  But the agenda is very open.  Maybe you’d like to know more about the history of your own house and we could recreate the new BBC TV series “A House Through Time”!

Ultimately the outcome from this, and subsequent research, will be the content for the signage and trails we are putting together for the HLF project.  And the more people that are involved the better.

Some of us are going to meet just before 12 in the café at Touchstones for a quick sandwich before the session – join us if you can.

Please do let us know whether you can or cannot join us (email: info@rmnf.org.uk).
