Thank you to everyone who organised, helped at and supported events in March for Heritage Open Weekend

THANK you very much to everyone who organised and helped with all of the events in Fenland Heritage Open Weekend in March last weekend. Thank you also to everyone who supported the events.

The Heritage Open Days event is the annual national opportunity for everyone to celebrate all the wonderful architecture and culture of this country for free. Places which normally charge offer free entrance; those which are normally free hold extra tours, talks exhibitions or displays.

Every year more and more places, groups and organisations join in to open premises and to share their places with the public without any charge.

In March we are very fortunate to have so many interesting buildings and friendly organisations and groups of all ages who want to share and welcome everyone.

In March we had 13 events this year:
