The antique Padiham water clock, currently housed in the room, is in the process of being refurbished and a varied collection of Padiham memorabilia is on display – a small museum has been created!
In the near future, the Archives Room will be open, by appointment, to the public and various community groups. An annual fundraising event is to be held in June in the Ballroom and the popular annual Archives Exhibition is scheduled for the weekend of 19th/20th September 2009.
The Archives Group would like to thank everyone who has donated items of interest, provided financial assistance and most of all, precious time to a valuable asset to the town by recalling memories for the older generation and providing an educational resource for the young.
Archives Group members: Councillor Bob Clark
