Nearly 70 members of March and District Museum, and their guests, attended a special event to celebrate forty years since the opening of the museum.

Freddie Grounds, who dedicated a plaque at the museum’s opening in 1977, cut a ribbon to officially reopen the West Room following its closure for extensive structural repairs.

He was supported by March mayor Kim French, and councillors Andrew Pugh and John Gowing, who marked the town council’s ongoing commitment to the museum.

Wine and cake was served to those attending on Saturday June 17, and entertainment was from March Folk Club in the museum’s rear yard.

The museum’s chairman Gordon Thorpe thanked all present, and also appealed for new volunteers to help steward the museum. Anyone interested should ring 01354 655300 or call into the museum on Wednesday or Saturday 10.30am to 3.30pm.
