Join us for national ‘Civic Day’ on Saturday 17th June from 11am – 4pm
This year Civic Day, which is led by the national Civic Voice charity, is celebrating 50 years of conservation areas. This provides a wonderful opportunity to celebrate and enjoy Swindon’s unique Railway Village Conservation Area.
Swindon Civic Voice and Mechanics’ Institution Trust, Swindon have teamed up to offer ‘Open Doors’ at four of Swindon’s treasured heritage assets: Milton Road Baths, the Railway Village Museum, Central Community Centre and The Baker’s Arms.
Guided tours of the Railway Village will also be given at 11am and 3pm. At 4pm there will be tea and cake and a special unveiling at Central Community Centre!
This event has been funded by, and with thanks to, The Midcounties Co-operative.
