MUSEUM staff took a trip to the House of Commons to pick up a prestigious award from television personality Loyd Grossman.
Chichester District Museum staff received the Sandford Award for Heritage Education at a ceremony in London.
Museum manager Tracey Clark and Samuel Fieldhouse, the museum’s learning and development officer, collected the accolade.
The award was granted in recognition of excellent educational services and facilities, as well as an outstanding contribution to heritage education.
It was presented by Mr Grossman, who is chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Churches Conservation Trust.
Councillor Nick Thomas, in charge of culture at Chichester District Council, says: ‘It is an honour to receive the award.’
Chichester District Museum at Little London closed its doors for the final time in January. The new museum is currently under construction in Tower Street and is due to open later this year.
