There will be a coffee morning at the Allen Gallery in Church Street, Alton, on Wednesday, September 7, from 11am to 1pm.

Past and present volunteers are invited, as well as anyone who would like to find out about joining the volunteer team at the gallery and the Curtis Museum.

Both venues attract visitors from far and wide. The museum houses the childhood gallery, with its toys of yesteryear, and the history of Alton and the surrounding area. The Allen Gallery has changing exhibitions and a wonderful display of ceramics as well as a café and garden.
