Key Stage 2 art entry from Pear Tree Primary School 2020 876 (1)

Nantwich Museum is to host its first live exhibition following its closure due to the Covid 19 epidemic.

A small exhibition echoing the annual Rotary Art and Handwriting competition will run in the Museum up until Christmas.

Each year, for the past 11 years, The Rotary Club of Nantwich has organised an Art and Handwriting competition for pupils of local primary schools.

Gift certificates and medals have been awarded to the best Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 entries in each category with many of the best entries being displayed in the Museum.

The competition in 2019 attracted almost 1,000 entries from 10 schools and organiser Ashley Weaver was looking forward to an even greater response in 2020.

But the outbreak of Covid 19 and lockdown mid competition led to the event being officially put on hold until 2021.

A number of pupils had however already completed entries for the current year and, in recognition of their support and talent, a selection of the work is now being displayed.

The museum is currently open to the public on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays 10.30am-4.30pm.

Visitors must book their visit by telephoning the Museum on 01270 627104 when they will also be advised of any specific requirements.
