Trustee Jonathan Thornton the High Sheriff of West Yorkshire congratulates his fellow volunteers at Colne Valley Museum on the wonderful news that they have been given the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service
“Sadly Colne Valley Museum can’t celebrate its 50th birthday this month as planned, but we are looking forward to a great big party when circumstances permit. In the meantime looking back to how we celebrated our 30th birthday in 1990….
We look forward to welcoming visitors old and new to our newly refurbished museum.
Step through the door of our traditional weavers’ cottages and you’ll be transported back into the early 1850s.
Wander through Colne Valley Museum’s period living room and wash kitchen to admire the Yorkshire range, flagstone floor and rag rugs.
