Horse Power!

Mauritz Elmar

 

You may have read about the Berry Head Signalling Mast in the Special Projects section of our website.

Felled logs for the mast were moved from the woods to the beach with the heavy work being done by Mauritz Elmar (otherwise known as ‘Mo’!).  Mauritz Elmar is a Norwegian Noriker  and belongs to Dan and John Fisher of Noriker Horse Logging.

New Look Reception Area

Have you visited the museum since we re-opened after the Christmas break?

If so, you will have had an opportunity to admire our newly refurbished reception area. The refurbishment was undertaken by the museum volunteer team of Roy Wilkins, Jim Lambourne, Otto Schneider,Louise Cresswell and Christopher Macauly.  Dave Ham sorted out the re-wiring, PA, telephone and computer.

Christopher has dedicated the last few months to designing and planning the work and he has also worked closely with local carpenter/builder Keith Gardner. The volunteers have stripped the area and repainted, added new shop fittings, carpets and advertising panels.

A big thank you to the team, in particular Christopher, for turning a small budget from the Arts Council into a smart and welcoming area that hopefully gives our visitors an appropriate introduction to our lovely museum.

Here are Roy, Otto and Christopher enjoying a well deserved break…
