Tangmere’s Year Winds Down – Or Does It?

With the arrival of November the Museum enters its last month of public opening for 2006. As ever there remains much for visitors to see and do, though the clock change at the end of October and consequent earlier evenings means that we now close one hour earlier at 4.30 pm (last entries at 3.30 pm) so you are well advised to get here that little bit earlier.

But the Museum’s annual closure for the months of December and January certainly does not mean that we become inactive. This time is used for essential maintenance, planned improvements and changes for the coming year. Our volunteer force is kept very busy during this period (though, compassionate to a fault, we do give them Christmas off) and we are very grateful to each of them for their on-going contribution during what is often a very cold time of year – particularly for those working on outdoor projects.

The final day of public opening this year will be Thursday November 30th and the Museum will reopen its doors to the public at 10am on Thursday February 1st 2007 on what will be the first day of our Silver Jubilee year.
