On Saturday July 6th the Museum was pleased to welcome the Mayor of Ely, Councillor Mike Rouse, and Steph Peachey from Cambridgeshire Fens LAG to the museum where the Mayor Mike Rouse had kindly agreed to carry out the official opening of the new entrance porch by cutting the ribbon on the doors, followed by the cutting of a celebratory cake.
Mike Rouse states, “The great thing about the porch is that it looks as if it has always been there. Just lovely.”
Prickwillow Steam Museum’s beautiful new entrance was made possible by a grant from the Fens LEADER Fund. Thank you to Steph Peachey who was there on behalf of the Local Action Group.
The improvements included new heating and reglazing some of the windows.
The vision and dedication of the team of volunteers at this wonderful museum are transforming it into a great venue, so come on all artists, photographers, theatre groups – how about staging some events there?
