  1. We are an Archaeology Community group based in the south of North Yorshire between Selby and York and we are keen to involve LD people in our 3 year Lottery funded Historic Landscape Project. Can you suggest a contact within WEA that can talk to me please?

    • Hello Brian

      We’d certainly welcome opportunities for our projects to work together. Nicola Thorpe is the Project Worker developing the York hub with local Organiser Helen Widdowson. I’d advise you to make contact with Nicola in the first instance (hover over About and click Contacts for her details).
