Ollie and Charlotte made in Mansfield!

Paralympian swimmers Ollie Hynd and Charlotte Henshaw are local folk and they’ve got the T-shirts to prove it.

Ollie and Charlotte will be sporting Made in Mansfield T-shirts when they compete in the British Para-Swimming International Meet in Glasgow at the end of March.

The T-shirts have been produced by Mansfield Museum in celebration of its new Lottery-funded Made in Mansfield gallery, which looks at the town’s major past and present industries.

Selling in an eye-catching red, the T-shirts cost £8 and come in small, medium and extra large. Children’s sizes aged three to four are also available at £5.

The museum’s new gallery exhibition has interactive activities, including an electronic beer mat flipper, clocking-in machines and a chance to design your own shoes, as well as photographs, artefacts, film and audio.

Portfolio Holder for Economic Regeneration, Cllr Kate Allsop said: “These T-shirts are a real collector’s piece and will not only make brilliant gifts, but will also help to put Mansfield on the map.

“The new gallery at the Museum is a mus- see for all the family, so if you want to have a fun day out, this is definitely the place to visit. We would also like to take this opportunity to wish Ollie Hynd and Charlotte Henshaw all the best for their meet in Glasgow, where they are hoping to secure their places on the Great Britain Para-Swimming Team.”
