Museums in the Market Place
Today North Herts. Museum and the British Schools Museum joined forces running a stall in Market Place, Hitchin. The event was organised by our grant-aided Volunteer Development Officer Jade Taylor (who is based at Stevenage Museum, but also works at both museums in Hitchin). Jade has been running the Museum Champions Scheme, which is encouraging new volunteers at all three sites. It was lovely being able to see people enjoying museum objects at close quarters; something we’ve missed recently. It was also good to hear how excited people are about the new museum, and a great opportunity for us to tell people about it.
