Are you ready to explore history with Middleton Life?

There’s less than a week to go before the start of the exciting new Middleton Life local history project, which is proving to be the talk of  South Leeds!

Middleton parkLocal residents are cordially invited to join the fun project, which will see participants become local history reporters, investigating the past of their community and telling people’s life stories.

If you’re interested in attending the first meeting of the project, get yourself along to Tenants Hall Enterprise Centre, Acre Close (behind the health centre on Middleton Park Avenue) on Wednesday, February 1 at 12 noon. There will be a fun introduction to the Middleton Life project.

There will be trips to local museums and local landmarks such as Middleton Park. The community-based reporters will post their findings here on South Leeds Life and also help produce a special heritage edition of our magazine.

They’ll also put together a permanent exhibition celebrating Middleton’s history in fun workshops at the new £1.6 million Tenants Hall Enterprise Centre. And they’ll help put together a special film about what they’ve discovered.

Members of the Friends of Middleton Park, Middleton Railway, Middleton Community Group and Middleton Elderly Aid and a host of other groups have all been invited.

We’ve also launched a new Middleton Life section on our website, which can be found here. It tells you all about the project, features all the posts we’ve done so far and details and how you can become involved.

The project’s open to EVERYONE. If you’re interested in attending, fill in the form below and returnb it to Tenants Hall or email Alternatively, we’ll see you on Wednesday!
