A young Museums Officer has been doing great work within the Newhaven Community.
Working with the local school cluster group, Newhaven History Group, and other members of the community, the Museums Officer will be organising loan boxes of Museum objects, teacher’s packs, and hoping to develop visits to Care Homes in the area.
The Officer has been involved with the Victoria Primary Gala and other school events, and her work with the History Group will be aiming to include a touring temporary exhibition and a leaflet about Newhaven’s history.
A community visit to the Museums Collections Centre is also in the pipeline.
It is hoped the work can also be developed to other areas of the city, following the success in Newhaven.
