Summer events at BressinghamNext Post
As always we’ve had a busy time here during the 6 weeks of the summer holiday - starting with the Scottish schools breaking up closely followed by the English schools doing the same.
Obviously there’s been a couple of rainy patches towards the end of the summer - we’re not immune to those - but we enjoyed some great weather at end of July / beginning of August.
What was the most popular event held during the summer?
By far the most popular event this summer was the Garden Railway Day where modellers came with their machines and trade stalls.
The gauge of model railway they use (double O gauge) is slightly bigger than that used by hobbyists at home in their lofts. It’s the gauge that people sometimes have going round their gardens (if they are that way inclined).
Were any events affected by the weather?
We did have some weather affected days - FIreman Sam and Postman Pat both got a bit soggy, but they still came along to meet the children, keeping dry in the Dad’s Army Hall.
So, despite the rain, we still had a good turnout of people entering into the spirit of things.
What happens now the summer holiday is over?
At the time of writing this, the Summer holiday ended yesterday - so numbers of visitors will go down, giving us a bit of a breather - but we’re already planning what we’ll be doing for Halloween and Christmas!
We haven’t downed tools completely though, still having a couple of events coming up - another model railway day and the vintage farm and tractor steam day in September.
Things are still happening, but a lot of our attention is going into planning a really special Halloween and Xmas - so we’ll keep you posted about that!
