Members of a Sudbury museum club celebrated their ten-year anniversary this week with a special tea party.
Gainsborough’s House Museum Club, led by Steph Payne, learning officer at the museum, began in 2008 with an aim to give adults with learning disabilities the opportunity to enjoy arts and heritage activities.
Two of the club’s original members, Kenneth Hoare and Tony Brightwell, both aged 74, and fellow club members were joined by Sarah Page, mayor of Sudbury, and Sue Ayres, deputy mayor, and staff at Gainsborough’s House to celebrate the ten year milestone.
Steph Parmee said: “Ten years is a wonderful landmark for the club to have reached – all our members so enjoy the variety of activities we undertake – from exploring local churches to creating self-portraits, that we meet every week and only take a break at Christmas.
“We currently have 14 members and are helped by a dedicated group of experienced volunteers whose support ensures we can offer a wonderful level of care and learning in a safe and friendly environment.”
