Beacon poster boards- available to any groups

Whitehaven’s the Beacon

have poster boards

of various areas in Copeland

free to use

The Beacon Museum currently has hundreds of information boards in storage. They have been used as part of exhibitions in the past and display pictures and captions to tell the story of a local point of interest, an individual or an artefact. Some have Copeland-wide interest and some are relevant to a particular area.

We feel that it’s a waste to have them in storage and think that it would be great if we could get them out and about in community venues. Is there anywhere in your parish that might be able to host one or more of these boards so they can be enjoyed by the wider public? There’s various shapes and sizes and the majority can be hung on walls.

Let me know if you have any ideas.
