Grand start to free admissions at Museum

It looks as though Fairlynch's new policy of free entry is paying off in terms of increased visitor numbers.

Chairman Roger Sherriff reports that well over 1,000 people have been welcomed by the Museum's volunteer stewards since charges were abolished at the beginning of June.   

"That is over four times the number for the same period last year," says Roger. "And we are confident of a continuing increase as word spreads about what a wonderful museum Fairlynch is, with so many interesting collections and exhibitions."

No entry fees are demanded but donations from visitors are most welcome to maintain both the collections and the fabric of the 200-year-old building, one of the very few thatched museums in Britain.
