The group, based at Space to Create on Eccleston Street, hosts year-round opportunities for the community to explore Prescot’s history and heritage.

It was formerly known as Prescot Renaissance but has changed its name to reflect its focus on the town’s illustrious past.

On Sunday 1 September, the Heritage Hub will be at the Prescot Carnival. Stop by, say hello and find out more about what the group have planned for the coming year.

There’ll be spinning demonstrations at Poco Coffee on Saturday 7 September, with a Beginners’ Spinning Workshop from 10am to 4pm. Learn about this traditional Prescot craft, and take home your own hank of yarn. Tuition costs £50 for the day, and spaces are limited, so book ahead as soon as possible.

The weekly Prescot Historic Society Archive opens again at Space to Create on Thursday 12 September. Drop in any time between 10am and 1pm to explore Prescot’s past. Former Prescot Museum curator Rosemary Tyler, currently a scholar at Liverpool John Moores University, is usually on hand to aid eager historians.

Finally, pop in to Space to Create on Friday 27 September, between 10am and 1pm, when the Heritage Hub will be hosting a coffee morning as part of the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning, to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.

For more information or to book for the 7 September spinning workshop, email Rosemary Tyler at heritage.shop59@gmail.com.
