The heritage of a Dales town will be preserved for future generations thanks to a lottery–funded project.
Wirksworth Federation of Infant Schools has received £4,200 from the Heritage Lottery Fund to carry out the project led by school staff and community volunteers the aim of which is to help make children aware of the town’s rich heritage.
The project called ‘Treasured Memories’ will culminate in the production of a town trail highlighting the heritage of Wirksworth and recording special memories by young and old residents of the town from the past 60 years in celebration of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
Head teacher, Jo Poyser, said: “We are excited to have received the support of the Heritage Lottery Fund.
“We are confident the project will support children in celebrating the diversity and heritage of Wirksworth.”
