… and how you can help us to help you.
Wellington History Group, comprises a group of individuals interested in various aspects of the history of our town and has been created to fulfill the following objectives:
1. To research and publicise the history of the town of Wellington and its neighbourhood, including The Wrekin Hill and The Weald Moors.
2. To work with other organisations and individuals having similar aspirations.
3. To organise or take part in events, exhibitions, displays and pageants of local history.
4. To advise and help each other with local history work.
5. To support any worthy efforts with positive implications for local history.
6. To publish books, leaflets and other work. We are not restricted to things that happened decades or centuries ago … even yesterday is history.
To help us make a success of this venture, we need your help. If you have anything on paper connected with the history of Wellington and its surrounding area (including The Wrekin Hill), please get in touch. We’re interested in anything and everything: personal photographs taken at work or during events, postcards, programmes, posters, maps, directories, guide books … in fact, you name it!
We are keen to acquire as much information as we can. And don’t worry about the safety of your treasured belongings. Unless you say you don’t want items back (in which case we’ll take them off your hands with a view to donating them to the Wellington museum if or when it is created, otherwise to Wellington Library), we’ll copy and return them, unharmed, in a short space of time.
So, please take time to explore those boxes tucked away gathering dust at the back of the attic … and, if you’re in any doubt about how useful something might be, we’ll help you decide. The only effort we’d normally ask you to make is to provide us with a little background information on the subjects of personal photographs.
Please help us rediscover Wellington’s Past!
