Axminster Heritage Centre is officially back and what a great first day back it’s been! We’d like to express our thanks to our wonderful team of volunteers and to those who came down to help us celebrate the Centre’s reopening. Among our visitors today was the Conservative MP for Tiverton and Honiton, Neil Parish who paid us a surprise visit with Axminster Heritage Centre Trustee, Andrew Moulding.
