Families flock to local museum as outreach project gets underway

Redditch Editorial 21st Apr, 2022

GOOD Friday saw more than 50 excited children visit the new Redditch Local History Museum with their moms and dads to bag free Easter eggs.

Ten special doors with simple questions on the town’s heritage had been hung around the gallery, with the answers inside.

Armed with pencil, answer sheet and clipboard, the sheets were quickly filled in as the doors were found and opened.

The race was then on to be first in the queue for the biggest egg.

One after another the pile of chocolate grew smaller until by mid afternoon it was no more.

Trustee Pete Harris said: “As part of our new Out Reach Project the day was a great success.

“We were amazed at the interest shown from even the smallest child.

“Perhaps we have discovered a future band of local historians who can carry on from where we leave off!

“A really inspiring and educational day was had by all and many adults were so impressed by our displays they are planning to return with friends, which is what we hoped for.”

The next round of fundraising for the museum is a raffle for a top folding bicycle complete with accessories.

Tickets are available from the museum and volunteers.

To help keep the town’s history alive and in Redditch the museum would also be delighted to receive donations.

“None of the Good Friday events would have been possible without the help of volunteers Malcolm, Dianne, Teresa, Martyn, Aimmy and Natasha who all gave up their bank holiday,” said Pete.

“If anyone would like to join us as a volunteers we have times to suit. Just pop in or visit out website.”
