Museum group says thank-you

CALDERDALE Industrial Museum Association is to hold a social on Wednesday evening at 6.30pm as a way of thanking members for their efforts in trying to reopen the Piece Hall Industrial Museum.

The organisation was formed last November and has been working on a business plan to raise the money needed to restore the museum and open it to the public for the first time in more than a decade.

The party will be held at the Masonic Centre, Blackwall, Halifax, and is expected to be attended by Calderdale Council’s community services spokeswoman, Coun Pauline Nash.

Organisers hope to have volunteers regularly working in the museum soon.
