We had a fantastic day on Easter Saturday even though the weather was cold and rainy.  We had a steady stream of visitors all day to see our most recent exhibition “Back to The Future Technology Exhibition”.  The exhibition featured early cameras, projectors, games, telephones, radios and computers and compared them to today’s modern technology.  We held a huge chocolate raffle as always and we should say thank you to Morrison’s and B & M Stores of Bacup who provided us with lots of Easter eggs which contributed to the raffle prizes. On the 18th August we were absolutely thrilled to hear that we had once again been succesful in bidding for Heritage Lottery Funding of £10,000 for a project called The Muck & Flea Club. Awarded through the Heritage Lottery Fund’s Sharing Heritage Programme the project will focus on telling the history of the Bacup Natural History Society ( once known as the Muck and Flea Club ) as we celebrate our 140th Anniversary. We will be researching and telling the stories about the men who from the Nat who took part in World War 1, those who came home and those who did not. Placing a commemorative WW1 bench and There But Not There Aluminium Statue in the Newgate Garden which is situated next to the museum.
