Dearne Valley Museum

A museum of the Dearne villages local history. Also an education centre, public space for hire and a people library. A people library is where real living people with interesting stories and lives can be “borrowed”. You sit with them for a period of time, perhaps in a bit of the museum made to look like a living room, and they tell you everything! All local people can register to be “living books”. It will give purpose to our older people and give wisdom to the young ‘uns!
There was a lot of Ro,an activity locally, and an iron age village discovered at Thurnscoe near Southfields development. There have been some important archeological finds and treasures. Modern history section would be very interesting too, from Victorian time through to now. A local history trail and map on-line would be good. One that can keep growing.

  1. A museum would be a waste of money and will need money long term to keep it running . When there’s other things that needs investment. Brodsworth hall is a museum close by, Clifton park is a museum which is a train ride away. We dont need anymore .

  2. Look at and improve the local road infrastructure. At school closing time the roads are all grid locked and a 10 min journey can take 40 mins! Straight Lane Bridge needs to be repaired & maintained in conjunction with Network Rail.
    Redevelop the market area and old school site. Encourage new businesses by offering competitive business rates.

    Invest in public safety by having an operational Police Station with enough staff to make a difference and one where you can call in if needed. CCTV cameras/ surveillance system definitely needed to curb crime and anti social behaviour.

  4. More family pubs in the area, especially new residential areas that are currently in process, theres such a build up of new homes being built in the middle of fields with absolutely nothing near by,
