The Saffron Walden Museum Society welcomed Sue Angell from Huntingdon at their recent monthly meeting. Sue took to the meeting a selection of fans from her own private collection. They were a varied mix, ranging in date from 1700 to the Millennium.

As an unexpected treat for members, items from the museum's own collection were also displayed. These are some of the many treasures within the museum, which cannot be on permanent public display due to their age and their very fragile condition. Sue is a member of the collectors group, Fan Circle International (FCI). She also showed members ingenious new fans, made by a group of Brownies, for use in a world of global warming. They had re-used materials, normally destined for the household recycling bin. Fans like these could be entered in the Competition, called 'Fan Your Imagination', which is now running through the museum. It is open to all ages with prizes (sponsored by FCI) of up to £50. Members of FCI will visit the museum later this spring to judge the entries.

Full details are available from the museum on 01799 510333.
