Groups and events are suspended


Groups and other events are not to take place in council buildings. This means that all regular activities and any special events run by Friends of Rastrick Library are suspended for the time being


22 March 2020

Local History Group

This group is held on the second Tuesday in each month at 6.30pm. Membership is £6 a year, but visitors are welcome free of charge.


We are predominantly a research group and hope eventually to publish our findings. You can read some of our research on the My Rastrick website, and most of our research about Rastrick is also available in the library. 


The Group has an ongoing programme of displays in the library. These feature various aspects of Rastrick's history and are changed about every six weeks. Visitors to the library have been helpful in identifying some people and places pictured. An archive is steadily being built up and some interesting material has been discovered about Rastrick and its people. We welcome any information, however trivial it may seem, from present and past Rastrick residents and new members or potential members are always welcome to join the group.
