Lottery bonus for county museums

Three museums in Gloucestershire are to share a £25,000 lottery grant to work with young people.

Cirencester's Corinium Museum, the art gallery in Cheltenham and the town's Holst Birthplace Museum are all to benefit from the donation.

It is aimed at raising young people's knowledge of the county's heritage.

Students from Cirencester College have already been offered practical experience of the county's Bronze Age crafts and metalworking.

The young people will also have a chance to put their new skills into practice, by producing their own mini-exhibitions of Gloucestershire's archaeological past.
