Mu­seum is on move again

Accrington Observer - - NEWS -

THE Hyn­d­burn Her­itage and Com­mu­nity Group is mov­ing to a big­ger and bet­ter new unit in­side the Ac­cring­ton Arn­dale Cen­tre.

The open­ing of a new cloth­ing shop has forced mu­seum bosses to re­lo­cate to the for­mer Blue Inc unit in the cen­tre of the shop­ping mall. It is the sec­ond time the mu­seum group has moved after pre­vi­ously oc­cu­py­ing the H Sa­muel jew­ellery store.

Colin Lowther, pub­lic­ity of­fi­cer at the group, said their new base is FIVE times big­ger and will al­low them to dis­play more ex­hibits and have greater par­tic­i­pa­tion with shop­pers and schools.

He said: “We are re­ally grate­ful to the Arn­dale Cen­tre staff. It gives us the scope to ex­pand.

“We’ve got var­i­ous things that have never been dis­played be­fore be­cause of space and we can invite more par­tic­i­pa­tion by peo­ple come in. There’s an area for younger chil­dren now with print­ing plates. We are speak­ing to all the lo­cal schools to invite them in.”

An open day will be held on Satur­day, Septem­ber 16 and could in­clude per­for­mances from mem­bers of the East Lan­cashire Con­cert Band and Ac­cring­ton Pipe Band.
