It’s the last week of our Bengeo Stories exhibition so if you haven’t seen it already make sure you visit us by Saturday 29th June which is it’s last day! And don’t forget there is a new book about Bengeo out as well and there are still copies available.
Last weekend it was the Hertford Carnival and despite some rather depressing looking weather forecasts the week before the sun shone and the crowds came out! Our staff & volunteers arrived at the museum early to put our float together.
The float then set off to the Mead Lane Industrial Estate to get ready for the procession. The crowds on the route were huge and enthusiastic- if you gave us a wave or took one of our flyers then thank you! We didn’t win any of the prizes but there were some amazing entries.
Back at the museum we were keeping busy as well with a model railway day. We had nearly 600 people visit during the afternoon!
And it wasn’t just the model railway sets that people came for, we were also serving Tea & Cake in our garden which was welcomed by people who had stood watching the carnival and now had sore feet!
It’s the last Saturday of the month this weekend so there will be Teas in the Garden running again (and if the sun doesn’t last they’ll be in the Andrews Room so don’t miss out on our fabulous homemade cakes and scones!)
