Staff at Helston Museum have been celebrating the confirmation of the museum's Accredited status, the award of which lasts for the next three years. Administered by Arts Council England, the museum's Accreditation Scheme ensures that museums across the country meet the required professional standards set by the Arts Council and the Museums Association.

Staff have been working behind the scenes since last summer, making sure that the museum's policies and working practices are up to scratch, and the announcement of the award at the beginning of March was a cause for celebration all round.  Accredited museums are also eligible to apply for a number of grants, so as well as making sure that the museum is functioning as it should, there is now the opportunity to plan funding applications to make sure that the museum is sustainable for the future.
