A public event is being held in the Moorlands to focus on conserving the history and heritage of a town.
Leek resident Cathy Fairley, who has a degree in History, is hosting ‘The Heritage and History of Leek and the Moorlands’ on Wednesday, June 29 at the Foxlowe Arts Centre from 6.30pm until 8.30pm.
Cathy said: “The purpose of the evening is to consult on the way forward to conserve, present and publicise the heritage and history of Leek and the Moorlands.
“There will be contributions from a range of local individuals and organisations; then there will be an opportunity to make your ideas heard.”
The evening is set to include presentations: A Local Historian’s Perspective by Cathryn Walton, a member of Leek and District Historical Society; A view from the younger generation presentation or video clip; Leek Civic Society presentation or slideshow; A view from the older generation presentation or video clip; and an Oral History by Debbie Potts and group.
The meeting will conclude with a ‘public comments’ session whereby people will be invited to suggest what they think could be done to conserve Leek’s Heritage and History.
People will also be able to say if they may have any resources/projects/developments of their own or the group they represent that they would like to see included in the project; as well as state what they, or their group, are prepared to contribute to the conservation, development and publicity of Leek’s Heritage and History; and any other suggestions for the way forward with the project.
Cathy added: “After the event, I will collate all the comments and put a report to Staffordshire County Council and Staffordshire Moorlands District Council.
“This is not political, it’s just about forming a body of information and communicating the wishes of the people.”
