One of the main tasks has been to refurbish the museum floor which was starting to show it’s age from wear and tear, not unlike most of us..

Below the boys get to work the cleaning the museum with the help of our “super extended vacuum hose”, repairing the floor joints and re-painting the floor in preparation for re-opening.

There are still things to do before we can re-open the museum but we feel we’re now in the home straight and hope to be able to let the public in again soon.
