It has been busy too as we have hosted two visits to our museum. On Tuesday morning we entertained the Selby Family History Society and last night it was the turn of the Snaith Historical Association. We showed them a powerpoint presentation about how the museum had come into being and then whilst they looked round the cottage we set out refreshments.
Gloria, Gilbert's wife is a wonderful baker and the visitors were offered sausage rolls, cheese and fruit scones, as well as a vast variety of cakes and buns. In fact last night our visitors were so happy it was dark when they eventually went home.

We have two more groups booked in and are happy to take more group bookings as after all the hard work it is lovely to show people round and explain where the items have come from.
