A small group of children enjoyed a craft afternoon on Wednesday May 27 at East Street museum. The craft session had a garden theme and children decorated plant pots decoupage style. They then made a pinwheel and a decorated plant marker and finally each planted a small pot with a marigold or petunia to put in their decorated plant pot. The Castle Museum has a medieval herb garden and dried herbs and flowers from this garden can also be viewed in the “still room” inside Ypres Tower which shows the wide variety of plant uses from medicine through to cooking, writes Heather Stevenson.

East Street museum is open at weekends and is free to enter, but donations are most welcome. The Ypres Tower can be visited every day at a small charge. The next museum event is a talk by the County Archaeologist, Casper Johnson, entitled: “Some new archaeological discoveries in Sussex”, many of which are finds from the construction of the Hastings-Bexhill link road. This is on Tuesday June 9 at 7:30pm at East St Museum.
