Saving our Heritage

The closure of Snibston Discovery Museum raises questions about the fate of the collections currently stored there. Some artefacts are already earmarked for return to the areas from where they originated. Some of them are particular to North West Leicestershire, hold great heritage value and help tell the story of the area.

Cllr Ronnie Adams says “It’s essential that we now secure those collections and artefacts that have a significant heritage value to North West Leicestershire; The Palitoy collection, the Whitwick Hearse, the Belmont Butty boat and the Fish and Chip collection to mention a few from the extensive list of collections.”

At the next meeting of the District Council Cllr Adams will be asking what support NWLDC can give to ensure local treasures are retained within the district for the benefit of future generations of residents and visitors to the area.
