2016 – Not as kind as 2015.

Our June and July Open Days have suffered from foul weather but we’ve survived and managed to pass on our heritage to a good number of visits, including 20 Cubs from the Whalley Scout Group. We purchased a gazebo to use in inclement weather but unfortunately the weather on 9th July was just to inclement and the gazebo was destroyed, I guess you win some, you lose some.
While on a family trip to Scotland our intrepid L/Obs met up with several other Post restorers at Cheryl Stewarts BBQ at her restored Post and Museum in Arbroath. Fellow restorer of Skelmorlie Post and owner of the Largs ROC Museum Frank Alexander kindly donated some items to 51 Post including a 1pt petrol tin, something we’ve been looking for for some time.
