Newbold Heritage Group Projects

NHG already have a quantity of information that cannot be contained in the website. Some of this is unique and therefore not even available in the local libraries and museums. Since it would be a shame to lose this, for example, when someone has a house clearout, we need to find a suitable home.

Discussions are underway to find a place to keep this. The artefacts have to be easily accessible to interested parties, so has to be properly marked, indexed, and safely stored to prevent loss and deterioration. Some of it could be scanned and held in an on-line repository, but other elements are such that a computer database with web access, could not be utilised.

When we find the most suitable options, we shall produce a business proposal and pursue the relevant bodies and the public, for the necessary funding.

Data Repository

The Newbold Heritage Group (NHG) is strongly committed to improving the facilities in our area, and to the collection and collation of information. We want more people to have access to it all.

In May 2017 NHG successfully opened the Colliery Trail with the installation of 7 Interpretation Boards, strategically placed around the site.This is to help visitors of all ages to gain a better understanding of the features in the proximity of the boards. Included are geographic, ecological, industrial and transport data as appropriate.

Information Boards

NHG continues to apply for funding and grants from a number of sources. We have already had several successes

In the meantime, the NHG committee members are continually involved in fundraisers around our village. Some of these activities are designed to promote interest in the area and the photographs and papers we have. Others are designed as get-togethers to just have some fun and raise some cash.
