After nearly 2 years shut we have now reopened. Thanks to our volunteers for all their hard work in cleaning, organising and making our new displays. Thanks as well to the Fire Brigade, Wannell family for their fire engines and Steve Walls (Mayor) and Owen Collier (Town Crier). Finally thanks to all our visitors.
