firstly, apologies to our regular visitors, due to a spell in hospital i was unable to publish the April newsletter.
the weather has improved so painting has started up again, and it was good to see visitors on board over the Easter weekend.
in the cinema room the large TV monitor didn't survive the winter and has to be replaced, and as it has now become such a focal point for visitors who enjoy going down memory lane. the replacement will be installed by the end of May
