Getting ready to open

Home > Getting ready to open

We must admit that we've been a little quiet of late - but that's because so much has been going on! At the start of the month we moved into our new building and we've been working hard inside ever since to get it ready for you all. We've organised tours for our volunteers to give everyone a chance to get familiar with the space and have been talking to Alec French and Rydons about all the little details which will help to make your visit extra enjoyable! We've even had our first event: the Volunteer's end of season meeting.

Here's the building as it is now (fantastic fisheye picture by volunteer Andrew Martin):

Yesterday, the first parts of our new shop arrived and are being fitted and we have already had deliveries of exciting new items from Linda Alvis art, Phoenix Needlecraft, GWP china and Farrah's sweets and fudge. The installation of our new exhibition begins on Monday - so look out for lots of teaser images of our incredible new displays being put into place! We don't want to give too much away at this point, but there is a lot of exciting new content on the way!
