Volunteer’s Gala Night

Gala Night 1

Many thanks to CVSCE for inviting us to take part in their Volunteer’s Gala Night at  Astra Zeneca on Wednesday 12th June! Over 200 volunteers and representatives from the local volunteer community attended the event, including 5 volunteers from the museum! Pictured at the event are Bill Pegley and Dorothy Robinson (seated), Janet Stevens, Mike Whitehurst and Linda Ward (standing L-R). “We had a fantastic night,” said Linda. “I felt so privileged to be asked to go. The entertainment was outstanding, the food was good and the whole atmosphere was great!”

“The mugs are a real team effort,” commented museum shop manager, Diane Ritherdon. “The illustrations were produced by museum volunteer Jessica Coatesworth, while local businessman Tom Mellor handled the manufacturing side.” The mugs are priced at  £3.50 and currently come in 2 designs – a pictorial one as shown another which features a copy of an old map. “Both are selling well in the shop,” said Diane, “and it is hoped to have more designs printed in the future.”

Pop in to the museum and get your mug while supplies last!
