LATCHFORD HISTORY  GROUP

The Latchford History Group was formed in 1996.

 

Our aim is to research the history of Latchford, from the buildings to the people and their livelihoods. We make our findings available through exhibitions, publications and by developing a significant archive of photographs, documents and publications. We also include film and audio recordings.

 

The Latchford History Group embraces the past with enthusiasm. We are inevitably surrounded by change and progress, and an interest in local history gives us an understanding of what the area used to be like and how and why it has developed into the place we live in today.

 

The group meets every Wednesday at 10 am to 12-0 noon at St Hilda’s Mission Hall, Slater Street, Latchford, Warrington.

 

We hold an informal meeting each week where we discuss on-going projects and embrace any future ideas.

 

Occasionally we invite speakers to focus on relative subjects.

We organise outside visits on a regular basis to places of significant interest to members.

 

We work on publications relating to the history of the area.

 

As a group we are interested to hear from anyone who may have memories, memorabilia or photos of the area and the people of Latchford which they are willing to share with us.

 

Do join us if you are interested in Latchford and its history.
