Ely Museum has teamed up with Ely Foodbank to provide 1,600 educational activity packs thanks to funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
The themed craft packs cover several millennia from the dinosaurs to World War II, as well as ‘starter packs’ including creative necessities, so there is something for all ages to enjoy during the summer holidays.

“With household budgets squeezed, the museum recognised that arts and crafts materials were probably not top of the shopping list for many - and that’s where we could help.
