Volunteers work

Volunteers play a huge and invaluable part in ensuring the continued success of the museum.  Here are some pictures of the work some of the volunteers were doing on Monday 3rd November.

Here are Roger and Eddie, busy clearing and preparing the allotment.

The chickens liked the chard leaves they were given.

The Merrills boards which are sold in the shop are all made by volunteers.
Here Alan shows the tool used to burn the lines into the wood.

Here Albert shows this in action.

All the artefacts in the museum have to be catalogued using Adlib cataloging software. 
Here is Sally using this for pillow lace making patterns, dating from the 1970s...
