Mitch lives over in Canada and it has been about five years since we last saw each other, so when he popped his head around the W&W offices, it was a wonderful surprise. Mitch also came bearing amazing news. It appears my blog has gone global, and he's been following all I've been getting up to via the wonders of modern technology. Cool huh?
Despite the rain, we ventured over to the Reg Day Museum which is just a stone's throw from W&W HQ. Tucked behind an aircraft hangar lies two cabins containing memorabilia from World War II and curated by Reg himself. Open every Wednesday from 10am – 3pm, the Museum welcomes visitors from far and wide, all of whom are interested in the wares which Reg has collected including shrapnel, model aircraft and uniforms from serving officers. We spent hours going through everything and hearing the stories which Reg fondly tells us about.
We also opened the new and exclusive W&W shop at Dunsfold Park, which means you can now purchase your merchandise online and in person. Tickets will be available to purchase in person shortly (they are already available on line!), and the first ten people to buy their tickets from Dunsfold Park will receive a FREE gift! What's not to like about that – advance rate tickets, a smile from the girls and a FREE gift.
Sadly, we've just heard news that our first trade show – Cowpie Country Show - has been cancelled due to waterlogged ground, which means I won't be out and about until Sunday 26th May at the Bramley Fete.
See you all soon.
