Bridget’s Group was the first local group to take up the offer of a coffee morning and private tour in the Heritage Centre, on Thursday, March 7, 2013. Organised by HRS committee member, Linda McArdle, each member of the group paid £3 for the experience. Sixteen members of the group came out on a miserable day to learn about the creation of the arcade and the Heritage Centre from volunteer and HRS committee member, Derek Tomlinson.
They then wandered around the Centre at their convenience. Two members of the group also joined Historic Ryde Society, which was an added bonus!
If you know or are a part of any local group which may be interested in such a visit, please contact Linda via the Centre on 01983 717435 during opening hours: Tuesday to Thursday and Saturday, between 11am and 4pm. You can also book via the email: firstname.lastname@example.org, when your details will be passed to Linda, who will make the arrangements.
