Our Heritage Group is entirely run by enthusiastic volunteers who:
- share a love of local history with like-minded individuals
- plan and prepare new exhibitions
- develop digital skills in cataloguing objects and photographs
- sharpen their research skills
- explore local Records Offices and Workington Library’s newspaper collection on microfilm for research purposes
- conserve artefacts
- answer online queries on local and family history
- develop interviewing and oral history skills
- work on new ways to raise the profile of local history in Cockermouth
Time commitment: monthly meetings and additional time to work on any of the above activities.
Supported by Heritage Group leaders.
