Rayleigh Town Musuem

Great news - the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) have approved our grant application in full for the sum of £89,800. This is the last major hurdle in our aspirations for the Town Museum. It will become a reality by the end of this year. There are many more hurdles to overcome - detailed planning approval, exterior signage, floor loadings, precise contractual (small print) requirements by the HLF and no doubt much more but our long held aspirations will become a reality.

You may have noticed, if you have passed by 91 High Street recently that building work has commenced and will continue for some time. We are taking a full photographic archive of all the changes.

Further information and updates are  available on the Rayleigh Town Museum website (www.rayleightownmuseum.co.uk), our Facebook page (link on our Home page), the Rayleigh Town Museum Facebook page (Facebook.com/rayleightownmuseum) and the notice board in the High Street on the wall by the Millennium Clock.
