The latest edition of our newsletter, “Pontefract Voice”, is now available to view online by heading over to our Newsletter page.

As you will no doubt read in this edition, we are currently developing a Junior arm of Pontefract Civic Society. This will include supporting schools to deliver aspects of the National Curriculum.

We are looking for volunteers who may be interested in sharing their experience of growing up/living through World War II with local school children.

Involvement could include: sharing written memories; loaning artefacts/memorabilia; visiting schools to engage directly with children. If this could be of interest to you then please contact for an informal chat.

As 2015 draws to a close, we’d like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
