Havering Hedgehogs provides opportunities for children to engage in fun learning activities relating to local and national history.
A term programme is produced in advance which links local people and places to different periods of the past.
Artefacts in the museum’s galleries are explored and used to inspire craft activities. Dark ages masks, medieval shields and coats of arms, Tudor pomanders, Victorian dressing up, Georgian wigs, gravity experiments and treasure trails have all been used to inform and delight our Hedgehog members.
National events such as the Diamond Jubilee and the 2012 Olympic Games have also been used to highlight the local community.
The children’s work is displayed in the museum’s Learning Zone or taken home. Future sessions planned for 2013 include Old Toys and Games, the Stuarts, the Second World War and Health and Medicine, which ties in with the museum’s latest exhibition, In Sickness and in Health.

The children enjoy their time, making new friends and building their knowledge of the past. Parties are arranged each year before the Hedgehogs hibernate for their Christmas and summer holidays. For further information contact Havering Museum or visit our website.
