Three local attractions have been nominated for an award at a ceremony celebrating the fantastic work done by museums, heritage sites and their staff members across Lincolnshire.

The Museum of Technology: The History of Gadgets and Gizmos in Throckenholt has been nominated in the Inspiration category at The Lincolnshire Heritage Forum’s awards, Ayscoughfee Hall has been put forward in the Volunteer Involvement section and Crowland Abbey in the Heritage Learning group.

The tenth annual awards take place at The Collection in Lincoln on Wednesday, November 16.

Jackie Goodall, team leader for the awards ceremony, said, “The people working within the county’s heritage industry, many of whom are volunteers, work tirelessly to provide the people of Lincolnshire and beyond with an immersive, interesting and educational experience each time they visit one of our sites or museums.

“It’s because of them that we have so many well-run and well-maintained heritage destinations throughout our great county.

“What we plan on doing at this year’s ceremony is recognise the men, women and places that stand out among the rest as some of the very best examples of what Lincolnshire’s heritage industry is all about.”

The Lincolnshire Heritage Forum exists to support, develop and promote museums and heritage attractions in the county through meetings, training opportunities, networking, skills sharing and joint projects and promotional activities. The Forum, like many of its member sites, is run by a voluntary committee elected each year by the organisation’s wider membership.
