On Monday 9th February, The Blue Mallard are holding a private function for Burscough Heritage Group.

History of Burscough Heritage Group

Burscough Heritage Group was formed in 2010 as an offshoot of a Parish Council Scheme. They have since been promoting the history of the village across the county. During meetings they discuss memories, collects old pictures and regularly hosts guests speakers.

One of their big aims is to document the social history of the village. Members have interviewed long-standing people from the community but are also speaking to the younger generation to make sure they compile their own memories for future reflection.

The chairman Mike Allen said “The group aims to collect and collate history about Burscough and the canal and bring it back to the community through displays and talks.”

“I’m not a local person; I have been living in the village for about five years and the first year I was involved was in 2011”

“It blew me away and it is nice to be in a position when you live in an area to give back to the community and I enjoyed every minute since”
