Last week we had a charming donation of a lively Pan figurine cast in Bronze. He was made by sculptor Barbara Foster and will shortly take pride of place in a new window display.
Our display of flood photographs outside the museum's front door has been replaced with a map and photos of the interior of the museum. The building looks small from the outside so we thought it important to show just how much space the museum takes up. The 3 boards of flood photos remain inside the entrance as people are understandably very interested in how we were affected.
We will be working to revamp our main window display as well. It had to be done very quickly to be ready for the re opening but we feel it needs a bit more "oomph".
We've been having problems with people parking in the museum spaces so when I was in Salem I picked up a rather fun sign which hopefully will deter errant parkers. (See photo)
Business remains steady but still a little behind last year. Regulars will be pleased to hear that the Riverside Hotel has reopened. I believe their restaurant will also be fully up and running next week. Clovelly Clothing is steaming ahead with their rebuild as well. The roof on the crypt at The Otherworld will also be finished in the next few days.
