We have received a couple of items of museum interest: attached are the posters for the Museum’s April social evening – an illustrated talk on the Devonport Dockyard Railway by Paul Burkhalter; usual details - 7.00pm doors open, 7.30pm start, free entry; and also one for our Red Bus Ramble on Saturday 26 April.
The Museum needs to get the bookings for this in as soon as possible so as to make sure it runs. The trip visits Kelly Mine (near Lustleigh) for a guided tour and working demonstration first, followed by lunch at the Warren House Inn, then on for cream tea – hopefully at the Dartmoor Inn at Merrivale, and into Tavistock for fish‘n’chips or another pub, as people wish. Departure is 10.00am from Buckfastleigh station. We need a £10 deposit to secure seats: either book in person via the museum, or post to the Museum Curator (John Brodribb) via Buckfastleigh station ( cheques to be made payable to “The SDRT Museum Support Group” and crossed “A/C Payee only”.)
