A VILLAGE heritage centre is inviting residents to say if any changes are needed.

Meet the Middletons has attracted thousands of visitors since it opened 18 months ago at Middleton-in-Teesdale, near Barnard Castle.

It shows how a typical family lived in the local lead mining era more than a century ago, and the part played by farming and quarrying.

A review is being carried out by Middleton Plus, the organisation that set up the centre, to see if it can be run differently and do more good for the community. People are invited to call in between 5pm and 8pm tomorrow to give their opinions.

Centre manager Grace Wallace said: "Visitors who have come in have generally been full of praise, but we know we can do better on some things."
