A free drop-in workshop with Mike Rogers from Lincolnshire Archives has been organised by The Natural World Centre in Whisby to help individuals discover more about not only their own past but local history as well.

The centre's current exhibition Farm the Land opened at the beginning of the year in partnership with Lincolnshire Archives, and Mike Rogers hopes the show will provide inspiration for people.

He says: "I'll be offering advice on the wide range of sources held at the archives relating to farming and local history, and how they can be used to find out more about your local community in the past."

Farm the Land is ongoing until March 28 at the venue and focuses on local agricultural history gleaned from contributions provided by the public.

Theresa Hobbs, business manager at the Natural World Centre adds: "We've had lots of interest in the exhibition with the film footage being a real favourite. It gives an insight to younger visitors and a wander down memory lane for others."

This drop-in session will take place on Saturday, March 22 (1pm to 4pm). It is free to attend and everyone is welcome. Whisby Nature Park, Moor Lane, Thorpe on the Hill. For further information about Farm the Land contact the Natural World Centre on 01522 688868 or visit www.naturalworldcentre.co.uk
