Friends of Ashwell Museum


The Friends of Ashwell Village Museum support the Curator and Trustees with the day-to-day running of the Museum and help with fundraising to assist in purchasing new artefacts and the care of existing exhibits. We also organize the opening of the museum on Sundays and Bank Holidays.


To support our efforts and to include everyone who is interested in the Museum we continue to run coach trips as well as a few evening events. Past trips have included Bletchley Park, Colchester, Greenwich, Flag Fen near Peterborough and the Imperial War Museum London. For this year we are planning trips to the London Museums in Kensington, and Leicester to see the Richard III exhibition including the Cathedral. Please see below for details of this year's events.


Talks we have arranged in the past include those given by well known sculptor John Mills about his work relating to the Women at War Memorial, Hugh Davies on Bletchley Park, and Keith Fitzpatrick- Matthews on ' The Archaeology of Ashwell and the Surrounding area'.

We welcome new volunteers to help us in our work with the Museum, so if you would like to find out a little more as to what is involved please contact any of the names below.
