Message from Debra: “Hello everyone. If you’ve not been over yet this year I hope to see you really soon. It’s lovely to share a few of this years highlights with you and let you know how you can support us in the coming months. Do keep in touch and pop over when you have chance! Best wishes, Debra”
They’ve been at the Wind Energy Museum in all weathers tackling some historic engineering challenges and it’s helped us finally create a scoopwheel for the Wallis Titt. They’ve also given many of our exhibits a lick of paint.
We now have local artists running workshops on a whole range of mediums. See the leaflet we’ve included for more information.
Education Centre/Morse Room
Paul Hooper has designed, written, collated images and installed some excellent displays about Thurne, the Wind Energy Museum and some of the people who’ve made it what it is.
Getting the word out:
We’ve continued to improve our website, ensure we’re in the local press, keep our Facebook and Twitter followers in the know, and contacted local tourism businesses to invite them for a tour and cream tea.
Group visits and corporate days
We’ve been blown away by the success of our special days for local organisations. Lovely people attending and a great way to fundraise or seek new sponsors.
Just one of Paul Hooper’s displays in the Morse Room
Paul Field has led the renovation of the store shed into a useful outdoor room to provide much needed shelter for more activities and events. So many volunteers have pitched in to make this happen!
There’s more to come, watch this space!
