Please support Louth Museum
In common with most other museums, this year our income from visitors has been much reduced, because of lockdown. But on-going routine costs such as insurance are hefty.
Although Louth Museum is not in imminent danger of having to close, we are mindful that the museum needs income to ensure long-term survival. Therefore, we have set up a crowdfunding site that will be active for eight weeks starting on 9 November.
Louth Museum is run by an enthusiastic team of volunteers, none of whom receives any monetary reward for all the effort they put in. They are dedicated to developing the museum collection and making it available for public benefit, but they need your help.
If you can, please click on the link below and make a donation, no matter how small or large. (Should you prefer to use old-fashioned methods, then a cheque payable to "LNALS" and sent to Louth Museum, is also very acceptable!)
The 1920 Louth Flood Disaster
May 29 2020 marked 100 years since the Louth Flood Disaster. On that fateful Saturday afternoon a severe flash flood claimed the lives of 23 local people and made over 800 people homeless.
A plaque to mark the centenary of the flood has been installed in Spout Yard, and there are plans to formally unveil it on 29 May 2021. Many thanks to all those who contributed funds towards this project.
