During the project, local volunteers will bring the rich heritage of the society to people in the Wakefield area and beyond through colourful events, including talks and displays, and by setting up an online archive.

This will be a new and valuable resource for local historians, ancestry researchers, gardeners, schools and anyone who wants to hear stories from the past and learn about what kind of people lived in the Wakefield area and what their lives were like. It will give a voice to people from the past and conserve the memories of local people for future generations.
