GROUPS of people are being invited to visit Guisborough Museum when it reopens in April.

The museum has new computer equipment and display cabinets thanks to a £4,000 lottery grant, which has enabled it to improve displays of local artefacts and photographs.

Jacky Quarmby, from the museum, said it hopes to bring its collections to the attention of a wider audience this year and is working hard to encourage group visits.

Schools wanting to arrange visits should call (01287) 637419.
