Arts & Crafts Awakening/Middleton Heritage Workshop

Our Arts and Crafts awakening meeting went extremely well this evening, 4th March. We learnt from Chris that The Arts & Crafts Trust was now fully incorporated. We have achieved our first objective!

We decided to create two sub-groups – the Lettings Group are moving ahead with the Urban Village Hall plan and will be meeting on Monday, while a Heritage Study Centre will meet tomorrow to make progress on that aspect.

After the meeting, we photographed the celebratory tablet which was made by James Smithies for the Middleton & Tonge Co-operative Building Society in 1928. We hope to have a special post on Smithies shortly.
