Many people will now be aware that The Wallingford Historical and Archaeological Society (TWHAS), a group of local volunteers, has been honoured with the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service, the highest award a voluntary group can receive in the UK. The award is to TWHAS for 'Engaging the community with local history through research, archaeology, publications and its museum.'
The Museum is now closed for its annual refresh but will re-open on 3rd March with a brand new local exhibition ‘Plague, Pus and Pills - the history of Wallingford’s hospitals’, which will trace the story of caring for the sick from medieval times to the present day’.
In addition, there will be special events during the year - watch out for the Easter workshops 'Can You FACE It ?' (which will appeal to ages 7 to 99!).   With an introduction to forensic science and plenty of imagination you too can make your own facial reconstruction, complete with eyes, eyebrows, nose, lips, hair and ears.
With such a busy year ahead, we are always keen to hear from anyone interested in volunteering, whether to be a custodian, assist with the archive, delve into research, assist at events, or be a walk guide etc.
