Droitwich Heritage Centre invites visitors to share their lockdown memories

Harry Leach 12th Aug, 2020

VISITORS to Droitwich Heritage Centre are invited to share their lockdown memories in a new display titled ‘History in the Making’.

The centre, which reopened last Tuesday for the first time in four months, is keen to hear what people did during isolation.

Hand-written notes are being pinned to the display in the hope of inspiring future visitors to also contribute.

One person has written about making scrubs for NHS workers at a time when PPE was in short supply.

Others have spoken about how important it was for them to do the shopping for their elderly relatives during the outbreak.

Mayor of Droitwich, Councillor William Moy, reopened the centre in what was his first official outing since the start of the year.

At the ribbon cutting he said: “Now that we are starting to see light at the end of the tunnel, our beloved centre can reopen.

“Safety measures have been put in place to ensure visitors enjoy the delights our town has to offer.

“Thank you to all the volunteers for your support during this difficult time.”

Only half of the museum is currently open.

The radio room is temporarily closed because it is too small a space to maintain distance from others.

Opening times are Monday to Friday, 10am to 2pm and Saturday 10am to 12am.
