AN EXHIBITION charting the changing nature of our leisure time has opened at the Dorset County Museum.

The Free Time exhibition at the county town museum runs until May 17 and looks at how pastimes have changed over the last 60 years.

It captures memories and stories of local people who used to pursue hobbies that are no longer, and some who still do.

The project to put the exhibition together has been a collaboration between the museum and the Dorset History Centre.
