Sunday 28th July
, the weather was good, not too hot and most importantly no rain, a perfect day for Rustic Sunday 2019.

A team of volunteers headed by Katie from the museum have been planning the event. All set up on Saturday, an early start on Sunday to get the stallholders in place and we were ready to go. Wheelwright's, wood turners, furnace operation, forge, stool making and other volunteers supplemented by demonstrators, straw dolly makers, willow weavers, rose grafting, jazz band and many others all entertained our visitors.

Other volunteers organised the car park and ensured the event went smoothly. Teas were provided by volunteers, ably assisted by W. I. friends and yet more provided pick a tee, skittles, lucky dip, book stall, bric a brac, raffle and tombola.

These stalls raised nearly £1500 for projects around the museum.

Monday morning and a team return the museum back to normal.

We are grateful for all the prizes donated by volunteers and Waitrose, Squires Garden Centre, Paul Fitchett Images and The Maltings, Farnham.

A successful day with many happy visitors and a boost to the finances of the Rural Life Centre.
