The Members Newsletter

Axminster Heritage produce a members newsletter which is sent as an PDF email to all members who have supplied us with their email address bi-monthly (usually February, April, June, August, October and December)   A printed copy is sent to members who have not supplied their email address to us.

However we have been monitering the opens and clicks on the emailed copies and listening to feed back from our members.  Most of you would prefer a printed copy.  For a trail period we are going to print more copies of the newsletter and on production of your membership card you will be able to collect a printed copy from the Heritage Centre.

If you would still like a copy of the Newsletter but are not a member you will be able to purchase a copy for £2.50 subject to availability from The Axminster Heritage Centre.

Please contact David Garrod at if you have any questions or would like to contribute to the membership Newsletter.
