Open Day a Great Success

The Museum’s Open Day held on March 11th was a great success. Almost 1600 people came to see and enjoy the many treasures we have on display. This total exceeded the total attendance at our last Open Day by 1000! Indeed, the total figure for the previous Open Day had been passed only one hour and forty minutes after we opened. The Museum had never had so many people through the doors in a single day before, and the parked cars stretched as far as the eye could see.

Judging by the many comments we heard, the messages in the Visitors Book and the Emails received after the event a good time was had by all. The most frequent comment was “I never realised just how many fascinating items you have here, I’ll definitely be coming back!” Please do, you are always welcome.

A feature of the day was a drive to recruit additional Volunteers and we had many of our existing Volunteers on hand, representing the various skills the Museum needs, so that candidates could talk direct to them about the work they do. We were delighted with the response we received and the process of interviewing candidates is well in hand.
