Egypt Centre achieves accreditation

This Is Swansea

Supporters of Swansea's Egypt Centre have been given a pat on the back this week after it achieved an accreditation award.

The museum, which is based on the campus of Swansea University, is also enjoying a double celebration — it is also the centre's 10th birthday.

Curator Carolyn Graves-Brown, who lives in Llanelli, said: "We are very pleased with the celebrations this week.

"We are very grateful for all the people who have supported us.

"The Egypt Centre very much works as a team."

Mrs Graves-Brown said they have around 80 volunteers.

She said: "Our volunteers deliver a lot of our services, which also helped us get the award."

The award which is set by the Museums Libraries and Archives Accreditation Scheme, determines the standards for UK museums.

"The fact we have achieved the award, and we are up to that standard is brilliant," said Mrs Graves-Brown.
