Havering Museum started its Christmas festivities in style by attending the Romford Christmas Light switch on, on Thursday 17 November 2011. Havering Museum had a stall where we were promoting our Christmas Family Fun programme and giving away hand made Havering Museum badges. The picture below shows the Museum Educator, Laura Turnage, and a learning volunteer, Sara Falcone making our badges for the community of Romford.
