Over 30 Dorset Mayors and their consorts visited Gold Hill Museum on the afternoon of Sunday 21 February. They were the guests of Shaftesbury Mayor and Mayoress Richard and Karen Tippins during their Civic Day, and had previously visited Swan’s Yard, the Arts Centre, Trinity Grounds, and the Heritage Snowdrop Collection at the Abbey Museum. Newly appointed Chairman of The Shaftesbury & District Historical Society, David Silverside [centre], was delighted to greet the assembled civic dignitaries, who were also addressed by The S&DHS President Jo Rutter. Jo gratefully acknowledged the part played by the Town Hall in housing the Museum in its early days, before it moved to various premises on Gold Hill.
