Volunteers are being invited to work on a community project at a Grade II* listed museum. 

Wisbech and Fenland Museum are asking people to help create a community garden in its newly-opened courtyard entrance. 

The group, named Cuppa and Colour, will be equipped thanks to a grant from the Cambridgeshire Community Foundation and will meet weekly from the end of this month. 

Louise Haselgrove, museum learning and community participation officer, said: “The group will meet every Tuesday from February 28 between 12.30-2.30pm. 

“We’re calling the group Cuppa and Colour because there’ll be hot drinks, cakes and a fair bit of chatting; it should be fun.”

Wisbech and Fenland Museum reopened after £684,000 of restoration works last year.  

Specialist contractors, Brown and Ralph, completed the majority of repairs to the roof and returned the museum close to the way it looked when its original builders signed off in 1847. 

The museum is now open four days a week following a spring-cleaning break. 

To volunteer, email Louise at: volunteering@wisbechmuseum.org.uk or call the museum on 01945 583817.
