Sadly, we have lost a wonderful friend and member of museum team, Arthur ‘Ron’ Thorn.
A long standing supporter and volunteer of the museum, Ron dedicated countless hours to helping people and preserving history.
His work with the archive and library collection has been vital to the museum, in fact most staff knew that if you had a puzzling historical query, Ron would have the answers.
He would always go above and beyond in his research for visitors, spending days on family history enquiries to help people reconnect with their ancestors.
Ron’s legacy will remain at the museum and his kindness and generosity will always be remembered.
Arthur ‘Ron’ Thorn 1937 – 2021
