175 Exhibition at Museum
The Vale and Downland Museum have kindly offered Wantage Methodist Church free exhibition space for 2 weeks in the Squires Room in October. The Squires Room is quite small and we should have no trouble filling the space with information about the origins, past history, current and future life of the church.

The museum will also loan us a lockable display case (for any precious items), other display units and a flat desk unit where people can browse photo compilations etc.

The Museum staff have suggested that visitors prefer to look at items and photos rather than read a lot of words! With that in mind we are asking people to hunt out any items (such as a commemoration item, baptismal card etc.) or photos (perhaps of a
wedding at church, the youth club, performances etc.). If we get too many photos we can compile a photo album for people to look through.

At this early stage can you let June Grunwald know if you have anything of interest on 01235 760488 or jnurdglaw@live.co.uk.

An opportunity to clear those cupboards and get into the loft!
