Volunteers and staff at the museum have been busy recently making some reproduction cart wheels for the Marshall thresher.
This You Tube video shows the process of putting the iron hoop on the wheel in an episode of the B.B.C series Victorian Farm.

I am so excited and really want this to work, as my colleagues have helped me so much. I am pleased to say that the things I want in the week to happen, so far have.
I have all the biscuits ready for decorating and all the activities set out and just need to wait for the day to come.
I will be asking someone to take some pictures as i can then put the on the blog and you can have a look at all the different things that went on.
Hope you will enjoy this next blog as i will, i will write one for each different day as i am doing something different myself.
See you soon :)

I have had another busy week. As I keep saying everyday is totally different. At the start of the week I was with Helen working in the stores. We were sorting out different types of collections and restored them. (That was pretty tiring!). We got through it though.
On Tuesday me, Mike and David went to a conference in York. I found this day really useful because it is interesting to know what different opportunities we are giving to young people. It was also a great opportunity to meet new people and network with each other.
On Thursday it was quiet in the office. I helped Barbara in the office. I also did a bit of front of house. Also the photographer came and took pictures of me and David in Stang End. I also helped Helen in the stores.
Today another photographer came and this time David was pretending to flip a pancake. (the pancake was made out of cardboard!!!)

I was then picked up by Bex who admittedly abit late, but who can blame her. The traffic in York is horrendous!!!
I was picked up and we left straight away, with a few idiots driving on the motorways we finley got to the turn off for the Industrial Estates, we made our move.
After allot of knocking down doors we found correct directions to the studios, we told who we were and why we were there.
They then gave me a script of everything I had to say and I read it out loud for the first couple of times to myself.
We then thought I was good enough, to do a real test/ run through.
Here is a version of me doing a trial recording preview.
I found that concentrating on the script was harder than it looked.
I really enjoyed my time though, and it was a great experience. I hope to do more in the following years to come.
Here is the final preview of my advert. It is a little dicey but the advert people said that they would cut out the bad parts and edit it and finnish it themselves.
