The museum has been busy over the summer with visitor numbers for December up on the previous year.  More than 200 people visiting during the month.  January numbers have not yet been compiled but are also likely to be even higher given the museum has been open every day.

New Acquisitions

Martin Lawrence has gifted are a number of vintage items that belonged to his mother Nancy Lawrence (nee Martin).  This includes a wrought iron “park bench” which will be set up on the north side of the museum to provide a sunny sitting area for visitors.  The Mens Shed will be helping with this.  The gift also includes other antique decorative items.
