Long Preston Heritage Group News
AGM & EXHIBITION
LPHG’s AGM will be on Monday 21st October at 7.30pm in the Village Hall.
This will be followed by a talk by Sarah Lister about the Settle project to safeguard the gravestones and develop the history of families buried in the graveyard of Settle Parish Church. A similar project has started this year at St Mary’s Church in Long Preston and there will be an exhibition to show the progress of this local project in the Village Hall on Sunday 20th October from 11am until 4pm. Refreshments will be available.
The Heritage Group has 2 ongoing projects - an archiving project and the St Mary’s project. Full details of these can be found under ‘Current projects’.
The Heritage Group has had several intensive years since its start in 2007 researching the history of the village, improving amenities and areas of the village and hosting social events. Over this time it has become an established village community group.
We do not charge for membership.
We are always open to new ideas and suggestions.
If you want to join the Heritage Group, please contact the secretary. You can just be a member or you can give as much of your time or expertise as you wish. We are an entirely voluntary group.
LPHG has recently become a member of the ‘Friends of the Dales’. This is the new (2017) name of the Yorkshire Dales Society - a registered charity set up in 1981 to campaign for the protection and enhancement of the Dales and to encourage everyone to value and enjoy this special area.
