One of the lesser known EHDFAS activities is providing guides and stewards to local Institutes and Museums. Six of our Members act as guides at the Henry Moore Institute, taking parties of school children around the statues and workshops at Perry Green.
The work is unpaid but at the end of the season volunteers receive a ‘thank you’ which this year took the form of an outing to the Sainsbury’s Art Centre at the UEA Campus in Norwich. The Centre has several Henry Moore sculptures and drawings on permanent display and in addition currently a Faberge Exhibition to mark the Russian revolution. The group was also given a tour of the internal corridors of the Norman Foster building.
Here are five of the group – Diana Dale, Jenni Reid, Pat Farris, Barbara Gibbs and Rita Hill. The sixth member – Judy Waples – was unable to make the excursion.
