March 23rd – Heritage Centre ‘Drop In’
The Heritage Centre, Church Lane, Ledbury
Residents from Ledbury and District are invited to ‘drop in’ at the Heritage
Centre in Church Lane Ledbury on Saturday 23rd March between 10.00 and
2.00 and talk to volunteers who staff the museum 7 days a week for 7 months
of the year. Hear about some of the developments that are taking place – the
oral history project, a programme of children’s activities and research into the
use of the buildings in the Homend over the last 150 years. Tea, coffee and
refreshments will be provided.
The Heritage Centre will be opening this year on Monday 1 st April. Last year
we had nearly 24,000 visitors coming from all parts of the globe. Visitors
particularly enjoy the atmosphere of the building, the huge chimney, the
construction of the building itself and the friendliness of the volunteers.
It goes without saying that the building can only be open throughout the
season as a result of the efforts of our wonderful band of volunteers. There
are over 50 at present but we have a few gaps to fill for the coming season.
Support is provided and you don’t have to be an expert to play a valuable role
at the Heritage Centre. If you have time on your hands and are looking to
make a very worthwhile contribution to Ledbury and its heritage, please drop
in and see us on March 23rd or ring 01531 633637 for further details.
