Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Family Announcements -

Ash­ford Mu­seum vol­un­teers were in­vited to a con­grat­u­la­tory tea in the Mayor’s Par­lour as he per­son­ally thanked them for their hard work in achiev­ing ac­cred­i­ta­tion from the Arts Coun­cil.

Ash­ford Mayor Cllr John Link was joined by the mem­bers of Ash­ford Bor­ough Mu­seum com­mit­tee who had worked hard for the recog­ni­tion at the event on Au­gust 1.

The vol­un­teer-run mu­seum was awarded the ac­cred­i­ta­tion in Jan­uary for the work that has been made to im­prove its con­tent and lay­out.

The Mayor said “It was lovely to get the com­mit­tee in to per­son­ally say thank you for their per­se­ver­ance for this ac­cred­i­ta­tion.

“The mu­seum is an ex­cit­ing part of the grow­ing cul­ture of our town. It was very im­por­tant for the mu­seum to re­ceive this sought-af­ter award, but it is also very well-de­served.”
