National Lottery ‘Thank you’ campaign.

On Friday 15th December from 10:00 am – 3:00pm we will be opening our doors free to National Lottery Players.  We are joining National Lottery funded visitor attractions throughout the UK in saying ‘thanks’to people who have raised money for good causes by buying a lottery ticket.  Anyone who turns up with a lottery ticket or scratch card on the day will be entitled to a free tour of our ‘Voices of War Exhibition’ and our community garden.  The first 30 people will also be entitled to a free cup of coffee or tea and a piece of cake.

We had a great turn out at the official opening event on 15th August .  Thankfully the weather stayed fine for us.  The children loved the balloon modeller and the face painter and everyone enjoyed the pizza cooked on our brand new earth oven.  Our next event will be a harvest festival on Sunday 27th September.
