Admission is free and special activity days will take place throughout the season.

Recently, museum curator, Dr Bob Symes, OBE, received a cheque for £200 from Waitrose through its green token scheme.

Hilary said: “We were very pleased to have had the opportunity to take part, and are very grateful to the public who supported us, and to Waitrose.” help for local organisations.”
