Name
Catherine Hammond

Job title
Education and Outreach Officer

Describe a typical working day at Epping Forest District and Lowewood Museums
There’s rarely a typical day – each one can be so varied! For example, one day I spent the morning running a toddler group singing nursery rhymes and making sheep puppets, in the afternoon I delivered a workshop on the Second World War to a group of secondary school pupils, then in the evening I ran a training session on Prehistory for a group of Primary school teachers.

What is your favourite thing about working at the Museum?
Thankfully, it’s the variety my job offers!

Share one piece of advice for those interested in working in the Museum field.
Be prepared to do anything, and most especially enjoy working with people.

Which historical figure would you like to meet and why. What would you ask them?
Probably Henry VIII – I’d really like to try and talk him out of dissolving the monasteries.

Where would you choose to go/visit if you could go anywhere in the world for a day?
Tough one – if it didn’t take a day to get there and back, it would probably be Stokes Bay, Kangaroo Island, Australia.

What was the first music track or album you bought?
Double Dutch, by Malcolm McLaren
