Long Preston Village News

Business or service provider? The village website advertises business and services. Please contact the secretary (secretary@longprestonheritage.org.uk) if you are interested for further information.

This Village website has a new webmaster and we would like to thank Charlie for stepping in to take over this role after we suddenly lost our previous 2 webmasters. We will now be reviewing this website to make sure everything is up to date. Also, if any local groups want to make more use of the website, could you please email secretary@longprestonheritage.org.uk with details.

Can’t come to the library?    We’ll come to you.

As volunteers for the Home Library Service we would like to increase the use of the service within our community.

The service is for people of any age who, for whatever reason, find it difficult to get to the library or to carry books. Our book deliverers, as you might expect, are a friendly, sympathetic bunch and their visits are welcomed by our customers.

So, if you, or anyone you know – relative, friend or neighbour – would like help in borrowing books, audio books or DVDs, please get in touch via the contact information given below.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Long Preston Water Trust Announcement

The Water Trust is developing a new website at longprestonwatertrust.online.

Any comments or queries on this site or the Trust’s water supply generally are to go to clerk@longprestonwatertrust.org.uk

Long Preston Heritage Group is assisting North Craven Heritage Group to update its 50 year old photographic record of buildings in Long Preston.

This will be undertaken over the next few months, so if you see some residents photographing buildings, please do not be alarmed.

We will be trying to take the photographs from the same position as the original ones so the changes can be seen.

Also we will be doing new (extra) photographs as a record so the next generation will be able to see the changes.

Hopefully, together with the NCHT, we will be able to have an exhibition of the photos in 2022.

We will provide updates as the project progresses.

If you would like more information, please contact: secretary@longprestonheritage.org.uk
