About Heritage Day
Well it was a great success... We had the biggest crowd around our front door, more than any other venue on Heritage Day this year. The museum was full all day... We had quite a few of our new volunteers on site all day which was great. Everyone enjoyed themselves.
The lady in the Edwardian costume is Sharen Wood. She was the star! Sharen was on the street at the front of the Museum and when people saw her they came in. A great attraction; people wanted to have their picture taken with her...little kids were so excited to be seen with her. Sharen is a lover of anything Victorian or Edwardian and made her own costume...she collects victorian dolls.
Brian Winter, Whitby Archivist was also on hand to greet people at the musem.
