We will be visiting Archbishop Holgate Almshouse just outside Hemsworth this Thursday evening, which should be a worthwhile and interesting event. Pontefract Civic Society recently arranged for a blue plaque to be installed on the building, which was unveiled by the trustees on their Founders Day.

We’ll be meeting at the venue between 7pm and 7:30pm, starting with light refreshments and a tour, followed a talk on the site.

All welcome, just let us know if you wish to join for a couple of hours. Email: secretary@pontefractcivicsociety.org.uk
