/ Museum's December treat for young
The Faversham Society is rounding off its golden jubilee year with free admission for under-16s at its Fleur de Lis Heritage Centre museum for all of December.
The society reports a recent surge of interest from young people in the history of the town, its industries, architecture and people, Chairman Jenny Parry said: “We are delighted to have welcomed youngsters into the Heritage Centre, they love the hands-on aspects and really relate to the personal items and stories. What better way to celebrate 50 years of the Faversham Society than to welcome the next generation!”
The museum, in the town’s Preston Street, will give free admission for children and one accompanying adult for the month of December, excluding public holidays. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
The centre is open between 10am and 4pm from Monday to Saturday, and from 10am to 1pm on Sunday.
The museum is also running a children’s Christmas competition from 1 to 22 December.
A selection of old toys will be on display in its window, and all that competition entrants have to do in order to be in with a chance of winning a fun prize is to guess which toy is the oldest.
Entry slips for three age groups (four to seven, eight to eleven, and 12 to 16) will be at the museum reception to fill in and pop into the box.
The three winners will be drawn at noon on 22 December.
