Plans are now going ahead for the new season at Louth Museum, and although 
April might seem a long way off, the exhibition team needs help from readers right now.

The first exhibition in 2016 is about Air Raids in Louth in World War II.

Although there are not too many people who will have first-hand experience of the raids, there must be many families who have stories of what happened to their relatives and friends at that time.

Geoff Hill, a museum volunteer who is co-ordinating the exhibition, would love to hear about the experiences of Louth families during this time. “You might have stories about children being evacuated, tales from ARP wardens or civilian fire wardens; we would love to hear your stories,” said Geoff.

At the moment, Geoff just needs to know if you have photos, memories or items that could add interest to the items already in the museum collection.

The easiest way is to email the museum through its website, or contact through Facebook, although it is possible to leave a message on the museum phone, 01507 601211, which is checked about once a week at the moment.
