We want to encourage those who would like to do something extra to the normal routine of attending monthly lectures to join others of a similar outlook to take part in projects in the community. We already have a group cleaning and cataloguing books of historical interest in outstanding local libraries. The Society has been involved with conservation work at the Botanic Gardens Museum, Southport. A team worked at Knowsley Hall cataloguing and conserving books. An eight year project of recording at St. Cuthbert's Chuch, Chuchtown has been completed. We also completed a Church Trail for children at St. Cuthbert's
