Lost trophies. 1 found!

Accrington champion Billiards Trophy has been found. There is a real
opportunity to have this Trophy refurbished and possibly played for again.

There's still remains a lot more missing trophies. Can you help?

Hyndburn has a round history and over the years many historic trophies have been lost or stolen. Some were taken without the Councils authority from the basement of the Town Hall in the 70s and 80s. Presumedly to sell. Many of these were allotments and other societal trophies from organisations that packed up many years ago.

Quite simply our history is being lost.

More recently some Cricket Trophies have been lost.

If you know the whereabouts please get in touch.
