The project will be headed by ex-player and current all-time record try scorer Craig Lingard who will work with a group of volunteers that currently include local author John Roe, Terry Swift, John Atkins, Ken Pearson and Stuart Merton. More volunteers are requested to get involved in different areas of the project so if you feel like this would be something that interests you please contact the club with your contact details. Alternatively you could always come up to the club on a Tuesday at 10am for a coffee and bacon sandwich at the well-attended Ron’s Breakfast Club where the heritage group meet.
Now this is where we make a request to everyone out there. If you don’t have the time to volunteer on the project but still want to get involved this is your chance. Do you have any memorabilia, pictures, stories or anything else of interest from Batley’s history that would make a great addition to the project? Do you know anyone that might have anything in their loft, garage or stored away in the back of a drawer? Get the word out there to everyone that you know that this project is going ahead. This project is for the people of Batley and the supporters of the club and your submissions will make the end result something to be proud of and celebrate.
Details of future events will be included on this site and any updates on the project will be posted to keep you all informed of the progress we are making.
