To All Axminster Heritage Members

You are all cordially invited to attend an open evening on Friday 15th April, 6pm-8pm at the Axminster Heritage Centre. You can have a preview of the new temporary exhibition Spinning a Yarn: The story of Sheep and Axminster which formally opens on Saturday 16th April. We are aware that this event is being held on Good Friday but we hope you can come along, not just to see the exhibition but also learn about the events and activities that we are holding as part of this exhibition throughout the summer months.
We will also be formally announcing changes to membership categories and new fees. The Membership scheme was started in 2005 and has had very few changes made to it and there has been no increase in fees since 2005. The evening event on 15th April will allow you to come along and if you need to renew you can do so under one of the new categories. There will be a full report on the membership changes in the Newsletter due out next week.

Axminster Heritage Ltd was formed in 2005, acquiring charitable status in 2006 (reg No 1113818). It is owned by its Members and managed by a Board of Trustees. The Trustees appoint an Executive Committee to oversee the day-to-day running of the Centre.
