Mill Green Mill and Museum has scooped a £2,000 grant from Tesco’s Bag of Help scheme.

The money is available to schools in the borough to help pay for their transport costs if they visit the museum during science week (Tuesday, March 13 to Friday, March 16).

Schools will be able to bring a whole class for free sessions to study ‘forces and motion’ or ‘changing materials and properties’ – both curriculum-based science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) topics.

Councillor Tony Kingsbury, executive member for policy and culture, said: “We’re thrilled to have been awarded this grant from Tesco’s Bag of Help scheme, and would like to thank everyone who took the time to vote for the museum in local Tesco stores.

“This money will help local students to take part in fun and interactive sessions at the museum during science week, and I encourage any teachers who would like their pupils to attend to get in touch with us as soon as possible.”

To attend a session, email the museum’s education officer Lynn Forrest on or call 01707 357850.
