LOCAL decorating company Harris Brush have donated £5,000 to the Norton Collection Museum to help boost funding for their ongoing renovations.
Work is being carried out to create more space for displays and make the museum more accessible.
Previously there was a small staircase where people could not even pass each other on so the new one is double the size.
There will also be a new lift, along with an eye-catching glass front and there are plans for a tea room.
Trustee Dennis Norton said: “We have been facing some financial struggles with the renovation work and are delighted to receive this funding.
“We have said for a long time the museum needed two main things – to be more accessible and a more modern look.
“It will have both of those aspects and we are still hopeful it will be open soon.
“When it is finished, the work will enhance both the museum itself and Bromsgrove.”
The Town Crier Kevin Ward said: ” We want people to know that when the work is completed that this is a place worth visiting.
“It will have an all new look and be more accessible for families.”
