Worth Park Garden – Crawley Heritage Open Day

A message from Edwina Livesey

Worth Park Garden – Crawley Heritage Open Day – 25th May 2016

Dear Resident,

Are you interested in Crawley’s heritage, history and archaeology? Are you concerned about heritage conservation and want to know how you can help? Then this event is for you.

Volunteers are more important than ever in heritage conservation in Crawley. Find out why from our expert panel of speakers including the County Archaeologist John Mills and Lorna Richardson of the Local Heritage Engagement Network. Or just drop in after 1.00pm, enjoy a coffee and view some of the photos, maps, charts and archaeology which have been discovered as part of the Worth Park Project. You can also find out about the plans for Crawley’s new museum and meet the Curator.

The event is free but the talks must be booked in advance as space is limited and places are likely to book up quickly. A full list of talks is below and you are welcome to attend all of them if you wish. Just let me know which talks you would like to attend (changeover during breaks only).

10.30am Welcome and introduction Helen Poole, Curator of Crawley Museum
10.45am The Archaeology of Crawley John Mills, Senior Archaeologist, West Sussex County Council
11.25am Heritage under threat? What we can do to help Elizabeth Rice and Joan Francis, Horsham District Archaeology Group
