ANDOVER Museum has received a cash boost thanks to the work of students from Andover’s twin town in Germany.

Students from the Gymanisum school, in Goch, Germany, raised the funds as a gesture of thanks following their visit to Andover Museum and the Museum of the Iron Age in February this year.

A cheque for £120 was presented to Louise Mackay, community manager at the museum, by Sue Parker and Margaret Henstock from the Andover Town Twinning Association (ATTA), the organisation that had arranged February’s visit for the pupils of the Gymanisum school.

Speaking after the presentation, Louise said: “We would like to thank the students of the Goch Gymnasium School for their generous donation to the Hampshire Cultural Trust and Andover Museum.

“Also, many thanks go to the Andover Town Twinning Association for organising the school’s visit to the museum and presenting the donation to us.”
