Jo Briton, of Mullis & Peake, said: “The Company like to support young people in Havering, and believe it is vital for them to learn about important historic events, some of which affected our community. Last year we supported the Museum’s School’s Education Programme, which provided free school project sessions to those schools who otherwise may not have been able to afford to visit the Museum. We also hope this will encourage children to visit Havering Museum and discover the wonderful activities they hold for youngsters.”
The winners will be announced on 15th January, 2018 and will receive their prizes on Saturday, 27th January, from Mullis & Peake at 1.00pm at Havering Museum’s Winner’s Awards.
