Sixty five persons visited the Museum on the very cold and windy Saturday. Sunday being the first day of British Summer Time ( That’s not a joke), meant that John drew the short straw to put the clocks forward by one hour.
Much better attendance figures on Sunday, with a total of 316 clicked by Marion, as Mick is still not well. We hope to see him back in the near future, as the biscuit barrel level is getting rather low. A touch of spring cleaning took place on Sunday, with a demonstration on how to operate a vacuum cleaner, with complete safety.
Easter Mondays figures were on a par with Sunday’s as 308 people ventured through the doors (mainly to get warm). A raffle was held over the weekend for the Museum funds, with the main prize being a splendid Easter hamper, compiled and donated by Roy & Sheila Sealey, as they have done over the past number of Easters.
A set of Railway books donated by David Pearson was the second prize in the raffle. A total of £96.00 was raised over the weekend, and the winner of the Hamper was Aaron Matthews from Lichfield, and Page Gilbert’s ticket was drawn for the books.
Thanks to all who supported the raffle over the Easter weekend.
