New trainee curator

We’re very pleased to have appointed Kay Eldridge as trainee curator, starting in early May. More news about Kay in next month’s issue of Dorchester News.

Museum opening times

We’re open until the end of September for four afternoons each week, Saturday, Sunday, Wednesday and Thursday (also Bank Holidays), 2.00-5.00pm

Please come in and say hello, have a look around the Museum and our popular gift shop.

As usual, we have lots of attractive small gifts for adults and children, a range of local books, and our wide selection of greeting cards.

Among the books is A Yankee in an English Village by Edith Stedman, the founder of the Museum. Edith gives a charming and amusing account of life in Dorchester during the 1950s-1970s. Beautifully illustrated with twelve pages of photos of Edith and the village during her time here. Price £9.99. Also available from the Wallingford Bookshop or Dorchester Co-op
