With temperatures set to be sky high this weekend, Nottinghamshire County Council are reminding the public of the events taking place in the county’s country parks.

A wide range of activities are taking place in the council’s archives service, libraries and other venues.

On 9th July, Howard Heeley, from Newark Air Museum, will share his experience of ancestral research of RAF personnel with a talk at Nottinghamshire Archives in Castle Meadow Road, Nottingham.

The event is free and will take place from 6.30pm.

It forms part of Nottinghamshire’s People programme taking place this year as part of the Nottinghamshire Ancestral Tourism Partnership.

Another up and coming event later this month is a conference for young people interested in heritage.

It takes place at the Galleries of Justice Museum in High Pavement, Nottingham on July 17 between 10am and 4.30pm.

It aims to bring together young people between 16 and 21-years-old and get them involved in archives, archaeology, arts heritage, libraries, museums, community activities and lots more.

The event is free but lunch is not provided - so packed lunches are advised.

Booking is essential as place are limited. To book contact Nottinghamshire Archives on 0115 9581634.
