An update from Louth Museum volunteers
Louth was voted ‘BBC Countryfile Magazine’s Favourite UK Market Town’ in 2012, and volunteers at Louth Museum are working hard to make sure that the Museum continues to be one of the town’s favourite attractions.
In October 2013, Louth Museum received a glowing report from the Visit England Visitor Attraction Quality Scheme:
‘This immaculately presented Museum is a delight to see. Visitors will be informed and entertained as they travel through time with the residents of Louth and their ‘special’ town. The unique collection of spectacular hand carved items is not to be missed!’
The volunteers are very involved in the running of the Museum. Plans for the 2014 season include an exhibition of sixty hats worn by Mrs Mary Cuppleditch while Mayoress of Louth in 1978/79; in May an agricultural exhibition ‘Combine’; in June in association with the Greek Embassy, an exhibition about Andreas Kalvos the Greek poet who lived in Louth.
Volunteers are also hard at work behind the scenes ensuring that such things as archiving and collection display are continuing. The Museum is also hoping to be part of ‘Louth in Bloom’ and to have a market stall at Louth Vintage Day in June.
