Sharing knowledge, expertise and information is the way forward for many local history societies in County Durham. Some groups and societies already have an informal network which they can tap into to get help, share knowledge or just to meet up and celebrate local heritage, but some groups and individuals may not have access to this network. With this in mind an umbrella group has been set up to allow groups, organisations and individuals with an interest in the history and heritage of County Durham to meet up with like minded people in a social and informal network.
Membership is open to societies, individuals and heritage organisations from the present and historic county. Membership of the Forum will provide the opportunity to keep in touch with other like minded groups and individuals around the County and offer an opportunity to have your events and activities promoted to a wide audience.
