The History of Ramsden exhibition took place in the Village Hall on
25th and 26th February 2023

This was our first exhibition since covid struck in 2020.  We had concerns that it would still attract the visitors, but it turned out to be the most successful show for many years.

We decided to open earlier on Saturday, beginning at 11am instead of 2pm and it was the right decision as people were queuing at the doors waiting to come in on the stroke of 11am.

We had a record number of visitors over the weekend, with 130 visitors on Saturday and 117 on Sunday.

This year the exhibition featured a display entitled "A stroll along Church Road', showing pictures and stories of the houses from the 1920s to present day.

Also included was a display on 'Scouting through

We would like to thank all the people who helped towards its success — the advertising campaign: distributing leaflets, putting up posters, erecting advertising boards, fixing two big banners on the fences of the village hall, sending emails and posting on the website and Facebook.

Thanks also to the ladies who looked after the refreshments, with lots of lovely home made cakes,
which attracted some positive feedback comments, as well as those who sat at the welcome desk, encouraging people to sign our visitors book and complete feedback forms as well as rattling the donations pot.

We would also like to thank the Village Hall Management Committee for allowing us use of the New Hall
free of charge for the weekend.  All this has made it possible for us to give a donation of 670 to the Village Hall Funds.

Of course, the biggest thanks goes to Isabel Johnson, without whom this would never have happened. We can now look forward to next year with renewed enthusiasm.

If you have anything of historical value that you would be prepared to donate, or allow us to copy, then please email us at history@ramsdenbellhouse.info.
