The Museum Party

Yesterday Market Lavington Museum held its annual invitation party. Apart from being a fund raiser, this is a chance for us to say thank you to all our friends and active supporters.

This year the weather was always fine. We had no prevarication about whether we’d be in or out. Our party was what it always should be – a courtyard party, just outside the door of the museum.

A bar is organised.  Our guests will enjoy a tipple or a longer, cool drink.

Tables of home produced nibbles are brought in by volunteers

The nibbles – more like a feast – are made by our marvellous stewards.

Market Lavington Museum courtyard party – 25th June 2013

The courtyard gets crowded. There are too many people to mention here, but socialising and happy chatter was the order of the evening.

Chairman Peter gave a short speech – a vote of thanks to all and a mention of some of the new artefacts in the museum. Curator, Rog, spoke briefly about next year being the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of World War 1 and some plans for that year.

It was one of those events, like the recent concert by choir and band, which make you feel proud to be a part of the community.
