IN the heavy rain of June 7, Nantwich Civic Society entertained 31 members of Lancaster Civic Society in a trip around the town.

   The visitors were met at the Civic Hall by Civic Society members who include Nantwich Town Mayor, Cllr Christine Farrall. She in turn was accompanied by her Consort, her husband, Mr David Farrall.

  The Lancaster party were taken around the town by guides from Nantwich Museum - Kate Dobson (Museum Manager) and Barrie Astbury (a Volunteer).



   They showed them the town centre's many historic buildings, including St Mary's Parish Church where a duty Steward gave them a tour of the church.

   The visit ended at the museum where the new Chairman, Nick Dyer, and Museum Volunteers

showed the visitors around the exhibits.

   The group lunched in town before continuing to Beeston Castle and St Boniface's Parish Church, Bunbury.

   The visit by our Lancaster colleagues was most


welcome. Despite the heavy rain, the visitors saw and learned just what an interesting and historic place Nantwich is.

   They had their appetites whetted for a return visit in more detail - and hopefully in better weather.

   In return, the Lancaster visitors have invited Nantwich Civic Society members to a reciprocal visit in the near future.
