The heritage weekend

 Over the two days of the heritage weekend we had 181 visitors, a record for Heritage Open Days.  Having had an average day Saturday with 62 visitors, Sunday we had 119 visitors, just 7 short of our single day record set last year during the Romsey Festival. We also had a couple of new memberships.


We'd like to thank everyone who came and who donated generously. The buffer stop café was a great success and we actually sold out of cake on the second day (you greedy lot).

To those who didn't come, you missed out on a great weekend and the chance to get in for free.

Next open day will be the first Sunday in October (Sunday 4th) with a £2.50 entrance charge (£3 if you'd like to gift aid it) children are free.
