AGM for Town's Museum

Fairlynch's AGM this month is a good chance for people to find out more about volunteering at Budleigh Salterton's Museum.

The Annual General Meeting on Monday 14 May at 7.00 pm in the Peter Hall in Budleigh will be an occasion to hear Trustees describe recent achievements and developments at the Museum. 

As well as being a forum for local residents to air their views about museum issues it will be an opportunity for Friends of Fairlynch to develop a strategy for matters such as fund-raising.    

Museum Chairman Roger Sherriff said: "We've had some highly successful events and exhibitions at Fairlynch in recent years and it was good to hear that the Museum was given a mention at the Scott service in St Paul's this year. As an Arts Centre we're keen to continue our support for local artists.

"We're always in need of more stewards of course. And we're keen to hear views from Friends of Fairlynch and indeed from anyone else at the AGM about topics such as museum admission fees, winter talk subjects, items for sale at our shop and links with other local groups. Everyone is welcome."

Many visitors to Fairlynch are impressed by the way in which the Museum has recorded the fascinating story of how life in the Lower Otter Valley has evolved since prehistoric times.

"Fairlynch plays such a valuable role in showing how Budleigh Salterton and the villages have developed over the centuries," says Roger. "It's a real privilege to be able to contribute to such an important part of the community."
