 Eric Knowles

Eric is looking forward to visiting family who live locally and when he does as he is  very much looking forward to visiting the cafe in the Heritage Centre. It’s always nice to receive his messages of support.  As most of you will know Eric is a local lad, born and bred in Nelson.  He is an expert in his chosen field of glass and ceramics and many of you will be familiar with him as a presenter on the Antiques Road Show, Bargain Hunt and other programmes.

Bobby Elliot with the Friends in the Heritage Garden

Bobby Elliot

A member of the iconic rock band, The Hollies. Bobby met with our secretary Jean Hardman last Autumn shortly after his book was published.  We hope to see It Ain’t Heavy, It’s My Story: The Autobiography of Bobby Elliott for sale in the Heritage Centre shop before long.   Bobby has six decades worth of musical anecdotes.   Sadly it may be a while before we see him in person as he has a very busy nationwide tour later this year. We wish him good luck for the tour.
