Opening cutting for web

From the Gazette- 25 Years Ago

From the Northumberland Gazette  Friday December 23rd 1993:

“The campaign to establish the Bailiffgate, Alnwick and District Museum received an unexpected boost when Alan Beith MP wrote to the committee expressing his wholehearted support.

Mr Beith had picked up the museum’s first newsletter when he visited the Exhibition of Old Alnwick Memorabilia presented by Mr Ian Robertson earlier this month. John Chappells, Secretary to the “Bailiffgate” committee, is delighted with the news. He said ” We are extremely grateful to Mr Robertson for allowing us to distribute our newsletter to visitors of his his fascinating collection, and more importantly for extending his exhibition’s run by four days in support of the museum project. Some 200 people visited it during this time, of which 60 expressed a firm committment to the museum.” “

(The museum was of course destined to find a home in 2000 and open in 2002-see cutting above from 2002)
