Rase Heritage Outing Thursday 5th July
A visit to Woodhall Spa Museum is booked for RHS members at a cost of £5 per person. This is open to non-members with the additional donation of £3 being requested.
This will commence at 11.00 with an introduction and history of the museum by one of the guides. We will meet in Tesco car park at 10.00 and car share for the journey over.
There will also be the opportunity for a walk around Woodhall Spa after and perhaps a visit to the Kinema in the Woods, which has an excellent free museum, open to all when the Kinema is in operation for those that wish to look around.
Please contact us through the website if you wish to join us.
“How I settled in Market Rasen”
Joe Willish gave Rase Heritage Society Members and Visitors an emotional and interesting talk on his life just after WW11.
Joe had been a P.O.W and was sent to Lincoln, later Market Rasen to work. He spoke of his worries for his future as a Displaced Person. More information in his book available in Market Rasen Library,

RHS Members welcomed Alan Dennis from Caistor to discuss “How Caistor and Market Rasen are linked in history”.

HERITAGE IS ALL AROUND YOU
Heritage is all around you – it’s just not obvious and interesting until you bring the town, the people, the stories to life – that’s what we do.
Take some research, add some evidence gathering, a spot of occasionally heated discussions and you can have that piece of history talking to you.
Bringing Market Rasen to life.
RASE HERITAGE SOCIETY has been doing just that for the last thirteen years with a long term target of having use of a building as a Heritage Centre to showcase the local artefacts, graphics and the interesting stories – along with a large gallery of photos – all your history.
We are not doing too bad to date with displays in
- The Rasen Hub Window and Conference Room
- A showcase in the Doctor’s Surgery, Mill Rd.
- Market Rasen Library.
- Tourist Information Centre located in Jossals Bistro, Queen Street
- Old Magistrates Courtroom, Dear Street.
- WLDC Offices in the Festival Hall.
New members bring more enthusiasm, more interest and help pull together all our work and showcase what has made Market Rasen what it is today.
Join in the discussions and presentations, the walks and talks, the development of new stories and the publishing of them for all the towns’ people to enjoy.
£15 per year is the annual subscription. Get involved and help in the storymaking as much, or as little, as you like.
‘How to Join’ is in the column alongside this at the top of the home page.
