The Young Persons’ Group has been established to encourage young people to take pride in their heritage, and to help conserve the culture and landscape of the area.

We do this by developing projects based on traditional cultural activities such as literature, music (hand bell ringing) and dance (rapper sword dancing); traditional skills, such as making proggy mats; heritage industries, such as coal mining and iron and steel production; and general awareness of what lies within the landscape. These projects are then offered to schools and youth groups to broaden and enhance their regular activities.
