V impressive display - and that's just the ladies' hats! No seriously, I have been involved in this sort of thing myself and this looks good. If I were closer I would be there with you -I love it. Well done.

Re: Accrington should have a museum

To esteemedjuju

Too right you can volunteer and of course you say WHEN you are free. We really need more interested volunteers, so that we can open for more days than we did in the Market Hall. At the moment, we don't think we will try to open Wednesdays. We are getting a rota going, so if you could only give a few hours "whenever", that would be really helpful.
Hope to see you down there! :-)

Thanks a lot Susie. It really is looking good, we are all "proper proud" and if ever you come to Accrington, do pop round. Let me know when if you ever do, and I will try and be there on that day.

Thanks again.

You're welcome, I know how much hard work has to go into a project like this. And Shillelagh's photos really do it justice. Well done Jen. Hope the press were there too.

Re: Accrington should have a museum

Hi, yep the press came round for an interview on Wednesday, but any photos of the opening event, which was on a Thursday, wont be in the Observer until next week of course.

Re: Accrington should have a museum

It's great to see the museum in its Arndale location and hopefully lots of people are learning about our history. Lovely to see my Gran's stuff in there and my Dad's old ready reckoner on display, which was used for calculating wages back in the days when we had farthings!

Re: Accrington should have a museum

Hi Cashman, yep, we shut shop for this year last Friday, although we had the Museum in the Market open last Saturday. We open again after the hols on Friday 3rd 2014 and then, from Mon 6th onwards, we are back to normal, all staff back from either hols or sickness. We have put two signs up by the Arndale premises, telling folk of our New Year opening time.

Make sure you pop in again please! :-) Your pal Pixie came in Friday.

Am just home from going to see War Horse at The Lowry, utterly amazing!
