Be involved in your community's rich heritage

[The best way to get involved is to join Stockport Heritage Trust, but failing that you can take the advice of the Stockport Times, in this excerpt from 27/7/06.]
Stockport Council has secured funding for a 3-year project which encourages people from local communities to get involved in heritage activities.
The project, to be based in Reddish and Brinnington, aims to give residents the chance to gain lifelong learning skills through local history and heritage.
The project is jointly funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and Neighbourhood Renewal, in partnership with the Council.
Two people will be employed by Stockport Museums to work with communities and volunteers to develop fun, heritage-based activities, courses, exhibitions and visits for the next 3 years. This project leads on from the nationally-recognised Access Heritage project which took place in Brinnington from 2002-5.
For more information about the project, contact Gillian Wilson, informal learning and inclusion manager at Stockport Museums on 0161 477 6517.
