Open by Appointment
Notty would like to say a huge thank you for all the villagers who kindly donated on viewing the VE display outside the Museum. And to those who didn’t view but sent a very generous donation. Although the day was very quiet with few people about, we still
managed to raise £100, which will be sent to Derby and Burton Hospital Trust. Thank you also to the ladies who so generously baked and donated those delicious scones!!
Award for Hope House Costume Museum
Hope House Museum has been awarded “Best Event” by the Derbyshire Museums Forum for last year’s “Dig for Victory” at the 7th Annual Derbyshire Heritage Awards evening held in July this year at the Barrow Hill Roundhouse, near Chesterfield. Many thanks to all those involved in making the Flower & Costume Festival at St. Peter’s Church such a success. What a great team effort from a very productive village!! The photograph shows Notty Hornblower receiving the Award from David James, Chief Executive of Visit Peak District and Derbyshire.
