Ashby Museum has a "Villages" room with displays of photos, information and artefacts about some of the smaller villages around Ashby like Blackfordby, Packington and of course Coleorton. The permanent display for Coleorton was set up in 2010 with a large poster with general info about Coleorton and its history and in front a glass cabinet for further displays, including artefacts, drawings, maps, which is changed from time to time.

Iโ€™ve been saving this one for nearly a year! In honour of Valentineโ€™s Day, our artefact of the month is one of my favourite of our objects: a locket belonging to Philip Bent VC. Acting Lt Col Philip Bent was a true Leicestershire war hero. Aged just 26, he died leading the 9th battalion of the Leicestershire regiment in a charge against the German frontline in Belgium during the First World War. We have a full, permanent display on Philip Bent VC in our galleries, including some handwritten letters by Philip during his service.

Did you know that Ashby Museum showcases both permanent and temporary exhibitions in our galleries? We have displays, and valuable archives, relating not only to Ashby, but also the surrounding villages. In fact, some of our temporary exhibitions this year will be put on by the villages of Coleorton,
Breedon and Blackfordby.

We also recently renewed our Full Accreditation status through the Arts Council - this means we conform to a large variety of standards in the running of the museum โ€“ the same as are required by the large museums such as the V&A and the Natural History museum!

Thank you to Councillor Kenny Horn for your support of Ashby Museum. If you haven't yet, please sign our petition to show your support, and make your voice heard by commenting on the NWLDC Budget Consultation site. The Alliance-led Cabinet are required to read the results!

The petition: https://chng.it/YF496YJJh7

The budget consultation: https://www.nwleics.gov.uk/pages/budget_consultation_2023

I met with Cabinet colleagues this morning to discuss the proposed withdrawal of the grant to Ashby Museum due to budget constraints. I emphasised the importance of this grant to the Museum and the role the museum plays in the wider Ashby Community. I'm hopeful the decision to withdraw the grant will be reconsidered.

However, Ashby Town and District Councillors must start to think about the bigger picture. For too long Ashby has been punching well below its weight compared to other towns across the district. Whilst councils are under pressure to manage finances carefully, there is money available for the right projects. Ashby is in need of investment in a number of areas and therefore I encourage all Town and District Ashby Councillors to work more closely to deliver the inward investment Ashby deserves.

Further, I met with countless local people in campaign with expertise, specialisms, talent and ambition to make a real difference to the Ashby community. Once again, I would encourage Town & District Councillors to reach out to this valuable volunteer resource.
