Busy Winter Coffee Morning raises “amazing” funds

Winter Coffee Morning 2021

The Museum was delighted to welcome back a huge number of Friends and Members to its Winter Coffee Morning in the Church Hall on Saturday 20 November after a two year absence. The Hall was busy all morning as friends took the opportunity for a coffee and chat, to pay their membership subscriptions and to browse the stalls. A total of of £1306.32p was raised for Museum funds, which our Chairman, Roger Radcliffe, described as “amazing”. Having two card readers available made a huge difference in these days when people carry less cash.

The raffle raised £171, the Museum Shop stall £196-39p, and Membership Secretary, Mary Wilson, took £505 in subscriptions.

The Museum is so grateful to anyone who contributed in any way.

Stewards and Committee Members celebrate a successful season

Stewards and Committee Members celebrate the end of the 2021 season

Stewards and Committee Members met at the Museum on Tuesday 16 November to celebrate the end of a brief but very successful season. Stewards were thanked by Chairman, Roger Radcliffe, for their hard work, enthusiasm and good humour and he especially thanked those who were able to step in at short notice to fill gaps in the rota. John Oaksford, Rota Organiser, added his thanks and was thanked by Roger for all his hard work. 

Curator, Clare Murton, urged the Stewards not to feel discouraged if there were problems with the IT, particularly the VR experience. It was the fault of the IT and not the Stewards! She lived nearby and would be happy to come and help sort out problems.

Shop Manager, Mike Furness, reported excellent sales with an outstanding total of £7,786.95 raised through the till and online. In a light-hearted competition the Friday Fireballs welcomed 481 visitors, the Wednesday Wonders 490 and the Thursday Titans 523. However, the Saturday Superheroes sold £1,086 worth of goods, the Wednesday Wonders £1,144 and coming out on top were the Thursday Titans with £1,169.

Mary Wilson organised refreshments and an enjoyable morning was had by all.
