A brilliant book launch for local historian Lyndon Murgatroyd!
Congleton Museum welcomed over 100 visitors to the launch of ‘Lest We Forget’, which tells of the experiences of Congleton’s servicemen through both world wars. Over £2000 worth of books were sold and Lyndon kindly donated two boxes of books valued at £360 to the museum. (Lyndon and his wife Sue are pictured centre).

A Wartime Love Story

A local wartime love story! Valerie and Theo from Veendam in the Netherlands visited the museum on Saturday. They left a message in our visitor’s book saying that Valerie’s Dutch father met her English mother in Congleton in 1940. (Presumably her father was in the Prinses Irene Brigade, which was billeted in the empty town mills at the time.)
