the Heritage Lottery Fund for their grant of £20,100

The aims of the project are:-

exhibitions and talks etc.

contribute to and share in activities

enable us to keep it lively and interesting. It would be invidious to try to
name them all. You know who you are! We are very grateful.

in touch if you can help.
