Wincanton and District Museum and History Society NEWSLETTER   SEPTEMBER 2013.

After Saturday 14 September the museum will close until Spring 2014.  This first opening period has been a busy one and a lot of lessons have been learnt which will help to improve the situation next year.  Much of the work has been undertaken by volunteer stewards and the success of the museum is in large part due to their efforts.

It is anticipated that the Museum will reopen at Easter 2014.

For the winter period we have arranged the following series of talks which I hope you will enjoy.  Meetings are as usual held at the Balsam Centre on Thursdays and, with the exception of that on 7th January (7p.m.), start at 7.30p.m.

27 September 2013.  ‘A Wincanton childhood’ by GILL D’ARCY
