Gainsborough Heritage Centre

by | 11 August 2022 | Gainsborough, Heritage

The Gainsborough Heritage Association would like to offer its thanks to all those who have supported it through last month. Once more Gainsborough Heritage Centre is beginning to get people back through the doors, and the positive feedback makes it all worthwhile for the dedicated team of volunteers who give up free time to keep the wheels of the Centre turning.

The Heritage Association is happy to be heading in the right direction towards getting museum status, which will not only be excellent for Gainsborough town but will also open many doors, allowing the Centre to apply for extra funding. The Association is charity-funded and therefore heavily dependent on membership subscriptions and visitors to the Centre.
Children’s summer holidays are now in full swing, so why not pay a visit to help the younger generation learn what

Gainsborough was in days gone by – the industry where parents and grandparents worked, the schools they attended, streets where they lived. Give children the chance to compare ‘Then’ and ‘Now’.

The information boards from West Lindsey District Council are full of fascinating facts. Let today’s children walk the street of days gone by, peek into the old-fashioned shops and ask questions about the past.

At just £3.00 for adults and accompanying children free, this is a fantastic and inexpensive facility. The Centre, on North Street, is disability friendly, with a gift shop and the cosy Exchange Café for inexpensive light refreshments. It is open on Saturdays and Tuesdays from 10.00am to 4.00pm – or for group bookings, contact the Centre on 01427 610526 to arrange a time to suit you.
