With a snip of a ribbon, the William Morris Gallery reopened to the public this morning, Thursday, August 2.
Holding the scissors together were Martin Adams, vice-chair of the Friends, (second from left, pictured speaking before the ceremony), and council deputy leader, Clyde Loakes.
As soon as the ceremony was over, members of the public started pouring into the Gallery to admire its transformation. Adults were delighted with the exciting new displays while children relished the opportunity to tackle the hand-on activities.
To celebrate the occasion, free teas and coffees were served in the new tearoom and customers also had an opportunity to buy the delicious cakes on offer.
The Gallery, admission free, is open from 10am to 5pm, Wednesday to Sunday.
