This month was busy for us , Barrie and Neil went along to the Brixham cricket club ,where they picked up a cheque from the rotary club. this is our second year they have kindly given us a dontaion .

The first few weeks have been spent getting everything sorted for the weekend event . it wasnt just a case of putting displays in the grounds but lots of planning a head..which started last year. we have had to have council visits and put in reports etc and of course keep to the conditions that they put in place. so lots more to it then you may think. But after a very busy week or two the weekend went very well , we had a few people who didnt turn up ,who had booked in ( it would have been nice for them to let us know? so we could alot their space to others ..) but apart from that all went well. even the weather was kind, the forecast wasnt good but it turned out fine for us .

we had postive feedback and lovely comments ,we would of course like to thank everyone who helped or came along , you all made it a very successful weekend ...

We have had a busy few weeks, first moving and getting things ready for our build.. then starting the job.. we are putting a new small upper floor in the main museum ,to take some storage, it only covers a small area, so wont effect the main room , But we need a safe place to store our reference and display items that are not being used. as we rotate our displays in certain areas . so this is a good option. We do owe this work to our great volunteers who are giving up their own time to do this . working five days a week . we have a great team .Neil Butcher and Mick Watson who are working on the design ,safety and putting it all together and the rest of our team who are also doing all the building  work etc along side    Rod, Phil Tony and Toby .(with help from Monika..when she can )they really are doing a great job. more updates later....
