The curator at Royston and District Museum and Art Gallery went down a storm when she spoke to members of a new popular society.

Jenny Oxley was the guest speaker at Royston University of the Third Age’s packed meeting at the end of last month and spoke of her aim to involve more children and families in her events.

Jenny has introduced a range of fun activities in her role, including printing and drawing workshops, and traditional craft workshops like basket weaving.

She is also encouraging a young curator’s group from local schools to help set up the Royston Festival exhibition.

She said: “I’ve been doing a big push to get more children and families into the museum.

“We get lots of schools coming in and I’m interested in getting the community more involved with the museum.”

Royston U3A is aimed at retired or semi-retired people and offers a range of educational, creative and leisure activities.
