Pendle Mayor to give tour around Nelson Town Hall
4:44pm Tuesday 3rd September 2013 in News
THE Mayor of Pendle will be helping to show people around Nelson Town Hall.
Two guided tours around the historic venue will take place, one in September and one in November, giving people the chance to go behind the scenes, and find out about the building’s civic history.
Mayor Coun Smith Benson said: “I am looking forward to hosting the tours of Nelson Town Hall in my role as Mayor of Pendle.
“If you’ve ever wondered what lies behind the doors of the town hall, book yourself onto one of our tours.”
The tours take place at 10am on September 14, and November 2.
Michael Booth, the mayor’s attendant, will be the guide for the free, two-hour long factual journey.
Visitors will be shown the old police cells, the council chamber, and civic insignia, before having tea and biscuits in the Members’ Room.
Groups, such as Women’s Institutes, Brownies, Scouts and voluntary organisations, as well as individuals, are all welcome.
Up to 20 people can be accommodated on each tour, and places must be booked in advance.
If you are interested in going along on a town hall tour, contact the mayor’s secretary, Fiona Standring on 01282 661636, or email her at fiona.standring @pendle.gov.uk
