Then it snowed
With such a tight deadline until we open, were we worried? of course not .... until the snow arrived last Saturday, making the Lake District a beautiful playground but not ideal for getting deliveries. It also curtailed the second of the volunteer training days as folks rushed off at lunchtime to beat the ever-thickening snowfall.
|Snow fell in Hawkshead last weekend but it won't stop us opening this Saturday!|
In the volunteer training days a week ago, the volunteers who will be helping to bring the gallery to life, had their first chance to see the gallery with its new look. Unfortunately life never being simple, work was not yet complete and we were still awaiting some information boards and display cabinets. What they could see though everyone seemed very impressed with, and they left looking forward to Saturday's opening.
Ready to go
Since then the staff have pulled out all the stops, had a few late nights, and with the snow melted and/or cleared we're ready to go (and hopefully we won't get more snow for the opening!)
