Future Plans

This page is partly to act as a reminder for us, as to what else we would like to publish to the web about our local history, but also it will hopefully whet your appetite!

Please contact us if there is a particular subject about which you would really like to see a new page written.

Most of all, if you have any information about any of the topics shown below, or any of the existing pages of information, or, indeed, about anything whatsoever to do with Heanor and its surrounding area - please get in touch. We would be grateful for any reminiscences, any photographs (or scanned copies of photographs), any documents, any mementos - anything at all!
