This week we’re doing something slightly different and introducing our person of the week!
My name is Jo Marychurch, and I’m the new Learning Officer at Hertford Museum. I used to work for Elmbridge Borough Council in Surrey, in their museum service. I’m very excited to be working at Hertford Museum, and I hope to hear from you soon!
Jo started today so she’s still finding her feet- make sure to say hello if you see her in the activities during the holidays. Any teachers who would like to get in touch with Jo please call 01992 582686 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
This week’s events
We’re halfway through our Extraordinary Egyptians activities! You can still drop in to take part in crafty activities inspired by our collections. Make a mummy mask, clay amulets and more! Different activities will run each week (Tuesday-Thursday) and activities cost just £1.50 per child, last entry 3pm.
Our Inspired by Bickerton competition entries are now on display in our temporary gallery so come and take a look at the wonderful display!
Don’t forget our new booklet, Lost Buildings of Hertford ~ Part 1. This book is full of images from our collections of buildings no longer standing in Hertford and it has been put together by our Museum Support Assistant Holly Rapley with assistance from Jean Purkiss.
