Archaeology Open Day

No Comments

For the fifth year running, Warmington Heritage Group took part in the National Festival of British Archaeology with a free event on Sunday, 13th July. Thanks to all the support from our members, friends and neighbouring societies, this was, once again, a very successful event. We hope that some of the people who came and enjoyed themselves will keep their interest in archaeology going by joining our excavation through the summer and autumn.

New members of Warmington Heritage Group are always welcome! November is traditionally when people renew their membership but you can join at any time of the year. We normally meet on the second Monday of the month in Warmington Village Hall at 7.30pm, though in the summer months we also take advantage of the lighter evenings to have a walk and talk in the local area. We have at least two outings further afield during the year, as well as taking part in other local events.

Fees are only £10 a year and whether your interest is local history and heritage or archaeology our programme is very wide ranging! For more information please contact us – you would be most welcome.
