If it's September, it must be time to say 'Hello'
In September 2019 we joined in with the nationwide ‘Hello Heritage’ days again. Their particular focus is on opening up heritage spaces not normally seen by the public. This year, as well as focusing on charitable giving with a new exhibition on Ashby’s generous benefactor Marjorie Wright, we also welcomed visitors to our bell-ringing chamber to see the totally fascinating (but usually hidden) boards showing details of hundreds of years of charitable giving. Also there are the boards listing some of the special bell peals that have rung out over our town. And we had a special treat of a live peal of bells rung from 10am to 1pm – quite a feat!
