The Greater Wigston Historical Society are pleased to announce the creation of a Library and Heritage Centre for Wigston in partnership with the Wigston Academy Trust. This has been in the planning for a number of years and has finally come to fruition. The library will contain books, documents, maps and pictures of Wigston and the surrounding area which will eventually be available for viewing by the public.
 
The centre will also cater for family history research in co-operation with Leicester Research & Family History Services (lrfhs.com).
 
The centre is being equipped at present which will take a little time as our funds are limited but we aim to be open as soon as possible.
 
We are looking for local partners to support us either through donations or sponsorship. If you feel you can help in this worthy local project, we would be pleased to hear from you.
