Family Fun in Royston

We’d like to thank everyone who braved the sleet, snow, and cold to come out to Royston for our Family Craft Day on November 21st. We learned a lot about when the Americans were in, around, and above Royston during the War. We had a great time making lots of different crafts, including creating finger puppets of American airmen and American Red Cross girls. We created stories and learned about how the Royston and District Museum and Art Gallery served as a Red Cross club for the airmen during the war.

Royston Family Day

Everyone’s favourite part of the day was making our very own paper B-24 Liberator gliders! We learned a lot about funny coloured assembly ships that guided the formations of bombers after take-off, but the real highlight was racing up and down the stairs to the museum’s balcony and trying to see who’s paper B-24 could fly the farthest.

A special thanks to the Royston Museum staff and volunteers for helping out and even testing out their own gliders.
