Our, new to us, van helped greatly with getting ready for the day (would have been even better if I’d loaded the BPI and clock!). With the help of 37 Post restorer John George Little we were set up in record time, not that we needed to be as the only 4 visitors we had before lunch decided they didn’t want to go down into the Post?
After lunch was a different thing with many of the 22Grp faithful appearing along with a steady flow of new visitors, many local but some not so, our farthest travelled were from Vancouver. Small world syndrome struck, the first two visitors we had came from Chester-le-Street inspired to visit by a visit to the trashed Sacriston Post in 23 Group, later in the day we had a visit by the former L/Obs of Sacriston Post and her family.
Dates for future Open Days are being worked out this week, watch this space (or Facebook, or our Twitter feed).
