VISITORS to Stamford Town Hall enjoyed a special town history lesson today (Saturday).

The building, in St Mary’s Hill, was open to the public and families got the chance to see its old court room, dungeons and much more.

A number of displays, including the town civic regalia and collection of memorabilia from Stamford composer Sir Malcolm Sargent, were on show for visitors.

Town councillors were on hand to guide people around the building and answer questions from the public.

Visiting the town hall were Carrie Freeman, 32, and her daughter Ivy, six, of Maltby Close, Wittering.

Carrie said: “It’s great for children to come along and have a look at everything. Ivy’s great grandfather was a mayor and her grandfather, Ian Hall, is the mace bearer for the town hall so it’s been great for her to see it all here.

“She’s very excited about it all and she’s loved seeing pictures of the Queen and sitting in the mayor’s seat.”
