IT may be one of the smallest in the world, but this month Midhurst Museum celebrated its 10,000th visitor.

To celebrate, volunteer Peter Upfield presented Tina Fenwick-Smith with Michael Chevis’ new book to commemorate the occasion.

Midhurst resident Tina often donates articles for displays.

Chairman Peter Nightingale said: “It was a tremendous achievement to reach this target in just over three years.

“It is a great credit to our volunteers who keep the museum open and interesting for the visitors and to those who put displays together. It is encouraging to see the community supporting us so well.”

At only 8ft 6ins by 8ft 6ins, it is quite an achievement for the tiny museum.

Displays change each month so there is always something new to see.

The museum currently has an equestrian theme and later in the year visitors can look forward to Georgian Midhurst, animal traps, emergency services, Midhurst memories and Concorde and Cadburys before ending the year with ‘Happy Christmas’.

The museum is open five days a week. To volunteer contact 07528 648643 or 07958 276358 or email midhurstmuseum@yahoo.co.uk
