In the gloom of the early morning today, a few hardy souls gathered with wheelbarrows, rakes and spades in the forecourt of the museum.

Their task – to spread several tonnes of fresh gravel onto the forecourt! Thank you Volunteers Malcolm Burrows, Jane Hanbidge, Simon Overton, Keith and Chris Rodger, Derek Ellis, Chris Tunnard and David White, and staff members Bridget, Katy, Wil, Megan, Hannah, Val.

Please admire the new, luxurious, deep pile when you next come in…..
