Help create a model of a Grantham of the future this weekend
A project organised by Grantham Museum aims to create a model of how the town might look in the future.
The My Grantham project has created a one-off event to find out what the people of Grantham want from their town. Everyone is invited to go and create their future Grantham as a scale model on Saturday (March 21) from 10am to 3pm.
Inspired by the work of Grantham College students, My future Grantham will explore what the town could be in the future.
The model will be crafted from recycled card and contain houses, shops, amenities, workplaces and anything people think the town needs.
Christine Robbins, Grantham Museum’s Director of Exhibitions said: “We think a museum should be as interested in the future as it is in the past. We have lots of records and objects that show how the town has developed, but we want people to use their creativity to design their future Grantham. I can’t wait to see what ideas people bring to this.”
The event will be held in Unit 39 of the Isaac Newton Shopping Centre (opposite Costa Coffee).
The craft activities will be suitable for all ages.
