We are pleased to announce that there are two new booklets on Graylingwell Chapel that shed light on the chapel and the history and human stories linked to it. They are available now online and hard copies will be available at the start of December
We are creating a voluntary sector hub in the Water Tower. There will be hot desks that can be hired by local charities and voluntary sector groups, home workers, budding charity start-ups that can’t afford an office yet.

It is daunting but also extremely exciting as we look at images, stories, blueprints and objects, and work to create a distinctive experience that will attract and engage visitors.
