Thank you to the many dozens of volunteers who have already been beavering away at the amazing variety of tasks involved in the museum’s Big Clean.
A message from Bridget….Can you help with the Museum’s Spring Clean?
Many of you have helped us out in previous years with our annual ‘Big Clean’ of the museum. It is that time again when we are in need of your help to give the museum an enormous Spring Clean – both the public areas (including the display cases) and behind the scenes.
Considering the size of the museum this takes a lot of effort and we would really appreciate it if you were able to spare a morning or afternoon to help us out. This is a very important job both to ensure the museum stays looking attractive for visitors and to ensure that we look after the collections and minimise the risk of getting pests in our stores!
We intend to carry out the work every Wednesday in March. Morning sessions will be 10am-12.30pm or 1pm/ and afternoon sessions will be 2pm-4.30pm or 5pm. Please can you let me know if you can do any of the below sessions:
- Wednesday 1 March AM or PM
- Wednesday 8 March AM or PM
- Wednesday 15 March AM or PM
- Wednesday 22 March AM or PM
- Wednesday 29 March AM or PM
There will be cake!
The spring cleaning continues, with two more dates left this month – Wednesday 23rd and 30th.
Four old friends getting together here? Not quite. Volunteers Anne Marlow and Sybil Dormer can be seen here, cleaning Dr Neighbour’s surgery. The Museum has the contents of the surgery of Dr Philip Neighbour, who practised in Amesbury from 1939 almost until his death in 1982. There will be readers out there who remember him!
