I’m involved in the community

Until 2020, I was living in Pontefract, West Yorkshire where I was involved in my local community as a volunteer with Pontefract Castle and Pontefract Civic Society.

Pontefract is an amazing town with a rich, millennia long history.

Pontefract Castle

At the castle, I occasionally ran children’s activities, manned the dungeon, greeted guests and helped in the running of public events. I made some amazing connections in my time as a volunteer here.

Pontefract Civic Society

As a volunteer with the Civic Society, I have been responsible for the execution of multiple design projects, including the new Blue Plaque Guide and the Pontefract Town Hall history guide. I’ve designed posters and images seen on their social media and have been consulted regarding web and SEO.

Despite my move to Lancaster, I still volunteer for the Civic Society when I have time.

I write

The civic movement in England: what is it, why should I care and how do I engage?

Across the country there are hundreds of civic societies; fiercely independent organisations aiming to work with local people and authorities to better the places we live, shop and work in. Learn more about them, why you should care and how to engage with them.
