History Group

Parish Rooms

Pollington History Group collects and archives information on the village. Group meetings range from informal gatherings, where members and visitors share information, whether photographic, historic or personal memories, to presentations about our latest research.  Work continues on the village archive and the preparation of Powerpoint presentations.   

Old photos, documents and artefacts are always appreciated.

 

The group meets in the Parish Rooms, West End, at 2 o'clock on the first Thursday of the month in 2017 (except August and December). Anyone with an interest in the history of our village is very welcome.  Events are usually advertised in The Link magazine.

For more information, contact the group's Secretary, Margaret Tones, on 01405 860764.

The programme for 2018 will be published ASAP.

Programme for 2017.

Following the success of the Group's World War II Display and Presentation in 2016 there were requests for a repeat performance particularly for those who were unable to attend. The Power Point Presentation "Pollington at War will be repeated on Friday 31st. March at 7.00pm in the Village Hall.

 

Programme for 2017.

This year our theme is Victorian Pollington and members are working on different aspects of life over this period. Most sessions will be workshops as we develop a variety of themes. These will include Families, Working Life, School, Church, Chapel, Transport, Public Houses, Entertainment and much, much more!.

You can help by joining the group, finding old documents and photos, visiting local Archives at Beverley, Doncaster, York, Wakefield and Sheffield. Pollington has always been on the boundary between different administrative areas which makes collecting information more difficult but perhaps more rewarding!

Maybe you have old documents, newspaper cuttings or photos which are tucked away and rarely looked at. Perhaps you are willing to share them with the group. Regularly members have turned up with surprising items which have been included in one of our presentations.

We look forward to seeing you at one of our meetings.
