Museum friends are looking to the future

First published in News

The future is looking brighter for a museum threatened with closure.

Council cuts had threatened the future of Red House Museum in Oxford Road, Gomersal, but the establishment of a Friends Group, to help support the historic home, and the recruitment of two new staff look set to secure its future.

The museum, referred to as ‘Briarmains’ in Charlotte Bronte’s novel Shirley, also has a successful gardening team who contributed to last year’s best garden in bloom award. The voluntary group meets from 1pm to 4pm on Tuesdays.

Future events include a Mother’s Day family-themed celebration running from 1pm to 4pm on Sunday, March 30, in the barn and in the museum. Booking is essential.

For more information about the event or to get involved with the museum, call (01274) 335100.
