The Peel Society is pleased to announce that it has received £7,700 in Heritage Lottery funding to pay for improvements to its Middleton Hall museum. These funds have been match-funded by the Society membership to the tune of £1350.

The sponsorship will pay for better artefact storage facilities, upgraded security, more display cases, with integral lighting, and best of all a new media screen. This latter will be installed in the book room on the ground floor where all ages and sizes will be able to see a comprehensive show of the museum artefacts as well as telling the story of the seven Robert Peels including Robert Peel V’s marriage to Beatrice Lilly.

The Peel society is indebted to the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Peel Society membership for making this all possible.
