MP Julie Marson has visited Hertford Museum to see how the attraction has dealt with the pandemic and to hear about its future plans.
Mrs Marson was shown around by curator Sara Taylor on Friday who spoke of how the museum opened its doors when it was allowed to and how it now opens on a Sunday so that as many local people as possible can come through its doors.
The museum is also holding a free event this Saturday (16th May) for the European Night of Museums initiative in its garden with European music artists in attendance.
“I was delighted to be invited to this wonderful local museum that cares for Hertford’s history and the objects that are important to residents,” said Mrs Marson.
“Museums have had a hard time over the last two years and this one – a charity – has worked wonders to stay open despite lockdowns and restrictions. It is testament to its staff, volunteers and trustees that it continues to be a focal point in Hertford and a much loved one at that.
“Thank you to Sara and Chris Seward, Chair of Trustees, for inviting me. I urge residents to support the event on Saturday if they can.”
