Museum Update The Museum will be opened, using accommodation at the Library, on Saturday 30 March at 11a.m. Our local MP David Heath has agreed to do the honours and we will be formally opening to the public at 10a.m. on Wednesday 3rd April.
After that the museum will be open Wednesday, Friday and Saturday mornings until early September.
It has been suggested that our museum will be the smallest in Somerset but our curator John Atkins is working hard to display artifacts reflecting the life and activities of the town over the past centuries.
Stewards.We held a very successful Stewards introduction evening recently and the vast majority of opening sessions are covered. I really am very grateful for all the offers, without your help the museum would not have been able to open.
HOWEVER there are still two dates to be filled and I would love to hear from anyone who would like to offer their services, the dates in question are Saturday 22 June and Friday 23 August.
If anyone would like to help out please contact me either on 01963 31665 or firstname.lastname@example.org. On all dates the museum is due to open at 10a.m., tea, coffee and decent toilet facilities are available.
Whilst Stewards are often on duty by themselves they are never alone in the building as there is always a member of the library staff on duty. Once again many thanks to those who have already volunteered and I am looking forward to hearing from anyone else who would like to get involved.
