After several postponements due to the coronavirus, the Radlett & District Museum has finally opened to visitors.
The volunteer-run museum will now be open from 10am to noon on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
Situated at the rear of the Radlett Village Institute in Watling Street, the museum should appeal to everyone who is interested in the rich history of Radlett and surrounding areas.
It will offer permanent displays of local photos, documents, maps, and artefacts, plus themed exhibitions and recordings and transcripts of interviews with local residents.
The displays will be changed regularly.
Full coronavirus prevention and safety procedures will be operated. This means that a maximum of four visitors, plus two stewards, will be allowed inside at any time.
All visitors must wear face coverings, hand sanitisers will be available, and social distancing requirements must be observed.
