The Historical Association are in the midst of promoting the 'Research your Local Community' campaign throughout the month of May, designed to get everyone interested in the history of their local area or birthplace. From interesting facts about royal visits to the origin of street names, there is so much to find out about our local history. It's a great feeling being able to conjure up pictures from the past and relate them to things you do now around about your community. The Historical Association have created a searchable database with events and talks happening throughout the month. Take a look at what is happening in your local area- there's more information on their website.
