SARAH Laycock – curator in charge of collections at the Bronte Parsonage Museum – is guest speaker at the next Lees Methodist Church Meeting Point.

She will talk about the work devoted to caring for items at the world-renowned museum, in Haworth.

Maurice Baren, for the church, says: "This is most responsible work, for Sarah has to know exactly how to treat the 'living' collections of clothing, manuscripts, memorabilia and so much more, to curate the material – ensuring items are available in good condition for forthcoming exhibitions and external loans to museums worldwide.

"This is a rare opportunity to learn more about what is so essential to the care of all the irreplaceable items in our world-famous museum."

The meeting is at the church, opposite Lees Primary School, on Wednesday, November 29.

Tea and biscuits will be available from 1.45pm, and the meeting starts at 2pm.

Everyone is welcome.
