Quote Marks

“I have been volunteering at the museum for about four years. Every day is different with visitors from Harlow and all over Britain and of all ages. Many people have their own story to tell about living in the town and their memories of past events.

There is a brilliant team of staff who have knowledge of the town and the artefacts we hold. I have discovered so much about the place I was brought up in and now live in. Special mention to the gardening team who work so hard to maintain the beautiful gardens.”
