History Group

Hartington History Group

Background

The History Group evolved out of a village exhibition held in 2008, ‘Hartington Through the Ages’, which generated considerable community interest and unearthed a wealth of artefacts, photographs, documents and memorabilia.

Activities

  • Oral Memory Events.
  • Adding to, recording and storage of the now extensive materials collection begun in 2008.
  • Researching the background to those named on Hartington’s War Memorial.
  • Researching the history of the Village School for its 150th anniversary 2016.
  • Preparation of publications, based on records and memories of past and present residents.
  • ‘Who Lived in Our House?’ – a continuing project which will research the residential history of particular Hartington properties.
  • Digital Archiving of history group records.

 

Meetings

  • The Group meets on an occasional basis to discuss and progress current projects.
  • As we develop collation and storage of the collection of artefacts, etc., meetings will be held on a more regular basis.
  • The sub-group involved with ‘Who Lived in Our House?’ currently meets most Monday evenings in the Village Hall between 7 and 8 o’clock.
  • Any interested person is welcome to be involved with this Group.
