A museum will close for the whole of January while staff go behind the scenes to organise its collection.

Surrey Heath Museum will reopen in February for its 2015 events and exhibition programme.

Curator Gillian Barnes-Riding said staff had audited the collection but now wanted all the stores to be catalogued electronically.

A team of 20 or so volunteers will be helping staff to complete the work at the museum in Camberley.

Ms Barnes-Riding said the electronic catalogue would enable staff to find items more easily.
