Christmas craft laser cutter event
Families are invited to learn how to craft their own Christmas decorations by using the Epilog Zing laser cutter to turn digital images into tea light holders, lanterns, or hanging decorations in a variety of festive designs. There will be free drop-in sessions on Monday 17 December at 10.00-12.00 noon or 1.00-3.00pm. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
Opening hours consultation results
Thank you to everyone who contributed to the opening hours consultation between 24 September and 31 October. We asked whether you would prefer to keep the current hours or move to the proposed new opening hours. The results were:
- Move to new hours - 93%
