The archives of the town need to be promoted better. If people knew it was there they would actively go to find out their family history. Additionally, the museum needs to focus on Warringtonian history. We have bountiful history from the earliest Roman settlement to the modern Burtonwood RAF site. It is essential that this is preserved, like it has been in Wigan and Leigh. Another thing we need is to ensure our listed buildings remain in a good state as these our are heritage. They should not be being converted into flat and their beauty should not be exploited for money. Finally, we need to invest in blue plaques. Whenever walking through Liverpool or Manchester these are apparent and provide a little education in the history of the building. For example, the Kendrick wing at Warrington Hospital should have a plaque to note that it was previously Warrington Workhouse. This is an essential piece of info that shouldn’t be forgotten.
