Come along and enjoy the Friends gift day and social gathering.

After last year’s successful gift day the money raised went to the purchase of a display case, and for ongoing expenses for oral history training.

This year it is our intention once again to raise money for a specific project.

Please make any cheques payable to the Friends of the Dales Countryside Museum.

For those Friends not attending this event, gifts may be left at the Museum or sent to Sue Foster.
