Our Open Day on Saturday 18th May took the form of a special event and display relating to 'Football in Bacup: The Early Years' and attracted a steady stream of members and visitors throughout the day.  Committee member Andy oversaw this event covering the period from 1870 to WW1 and because of his close association with the National Football Museum in Manchester it meant that Bacup had 14 items from their collection on display including a Burnley FA cup winner’s medal from 1914.
