Friends News Letter

2016 November

By David Hall

Friends of Ashwell Village Museum


        With the Opening of the Marie and Pauline Whitby Exhibition on Saturday 12th November  which Peter and Sarah have organized so well for us, we have been  pleased to help by hosting the Preview to support this event. We felt that it was a good opportunity to do something for ‘THE FRIENDS’ as we have not done anything for some time.   Thank You to those who find time to visit this Exhibition

   We have scoured various lists enabling us to contact Life Members as well as our Annual Supporters and if we did not contact you please accept our apologies. We now intend to update our lists and will endeavour to encourage new Friends which will in turn support the Museum. We will be looking at this early in 2017 together with the pricing structure.

  Thank  You to all those who supported our Coach Trips and Talks during 2016. As far as we know everyone has appreciated them and we plan to continue these during 2017. At the end of November we will be discussing possibilities so if, when reading, this you have any ideas please let us know.

  We mention the Annual Coffee Morning which we have now been hosting in the Museum for some time now. This will be on SATURDAY 21st January 2017 in the Museum 10am -12pm. We invite all our current Volunteers as well as anyone who may be interested in any other way. Please do join us.

  We will also be opening for  DECEMBER 3rd is  ASHWELL AT CHRISTMAS  so do visit us as we do have several small items for sale which may be useful as stocking fillers.

  DECEMBER 10th   is the Café and Book Swap morning and we do intend opening then as we usually do between 10 am and 12 pm.

 Further information which may be helpful is to note our closing dates over the Christmas period. These are listed below but as ever if anyone wants to visit us with a Group etc  Peter or any of us who hold a key would be happy to help.




May we take this opportunity to wish all our Supporters a VERY HAPPY CHRISTMAS and a PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR   and look forward to seeing as many as possible in the Museum in 2017

The Committee of The Friends of The Museum
