The museum is closed today, but that doesn’t mean it’s all stop. Yesterday was the last chance to view the Deco Dress exhibition, so this week everything related to that exhibition will be taken down, including the window display. The photos submitted for our Leisure and Pleasure in Herne Bay are being sorted and framed, and will be hung in the gallery this week ready for the start of the exhibition next Saturday. Volunteers are choosing their favourites to be made into postcards, and voting slips are being prepared for you to choose your favourites to join them in the 2019 calendar. The new window display is being prepared.
And there’s still all the other work that goes on in a museum and gift shop – checking stock, organising the rota, working on the rest of the exhibitions that are scheduled for the year, developing the outreach programme to involve families in the community, developing marketing and publicity, and carrying out building maintenance, to name just a few of the jobs.
During the next week, the rest of the museum is open as normal, but there will be no access to the front exhibition room. And of course our gift shop is open, with a wide selection of gifts and other items, many locally sourced.
From Saturday, we’re looking forward to revealing the entries for the photo exhibition and competition. Please come and vote!
