Text Box: Help Needed
This year we have to redecorate the inside of the museum in accordance with the terms of our lease. When this last happened, a number of members volunteered to do a room, either by themselves or with others. 
The decoration is still very good, and it won't be a difficult job, so if you, with or without some friends, are prepared to tackle one room, please contact Alan Freke 0117 9570942 to register your interest. The most likely time for doing the work is during the December shutdown, but it can be done to suit you.
