Linskill Life. Our school, our community, our history

linskilllifeValuing, capturing and conserving Linskill’s history and the community’s relationship with the school.

To those of you who filled in questionnaires, who kindly donated school photos and school certificates, and who shared memories of Linskill School with us, to those who offered letters of support towards our Heritage Lottery Fund application and others that helped shape our final  submission – a big THANK YOU! Because it worked, and we got the money! All £46,000 of it!

As a reminder about the project, Linskill Life will take place over the coming year with the aim of researching and drawing together a history of the school, from its opening in 1932 to its closure in 1984. To achieve this we are inviting anyone (either as past “Linka’s” or others that may be interested in giving time to the project) to get involved with helping with research, with capturing oral histories from past pupils or ex-school staff, and with helping digitally archive the school’s history to be shared with others both during and at the end of the project.

Linskill Life will regularly present what we learn about the Linskill’s history over the coming months via The Centre’s website, via FaceBook and Twitter, through the local press and in displays of research within the Centre. To find out how you can contribute your photos and memories to theproject, and/or how you can get involved in the helping with the research, then either come along to Linskill Life’s drop-in launch at the Linskill Centre on: 

Friday 3rd October (between 12 – 6pm) and Saturday 4th October (between 10 – 4pm).
