Onwards and Upwards
Progress on the proposed Redditch Local History Museum continues with our Facebook group now toping 1300

Fundraising is also going well with nearly £12,000 pledged so far.

The Heritage Lottery Fund has just re-opened for applications and we are putting a team together to submit a bid based on creating a museum that is integrated with the community.

What we need is more public support, more donations and more volunteers to help make it happen.
