Things you can do at home

Unfortunately the Heritage Centre is currently closed but our team have prepared a set of resources for children to allow them to learn about the history of Wirksworth through a series of fun activities.  We are adding to these every week, so look out for new activities here and on our Facebook page.  If you complete these and return them (coloured where this looks good) together with name and contact details of under 13 year olds, these entries will be put into a prize draw to win one of our woolly rhino cuddly toys.  

If you have enjoyed these activities, please do consider making a donation to the costs of running our charity  https://www.wirksworthheritage.co.uk/donate/
