Tuesday's Royal Visit

Yesterday was a hive of industry preparing for the Royal visit on Tuesday.

If it didn't move then it was polished or painted. All the grass was cut and strimmed for extra neat edges. New signs went up to replace old ones that had seen far better days.

As the weather had turned from sweltering to normal, grey and threatening to rain, it was a very busy day for visitors. Normally Fridays are quiet as holiday makers either leave for home, or don't go far as they have to pack to leave the next day. But as it wasn't beach weather they all seemed to pay a visit to the museum.

A reminder for any of you that can come on Tuesday that car parking will be on Davidstow airfield with our complimentary shuttle bus, Marlene, taking you to and from the museum at regular intervals. There will be clear signs pointing to where you should go to park, and a volunteer will be at the end of the museum drive to point you in the right direction.

If you specifically wish to see Princess Alexandra then we suggest that you aim to be in the museum by 1.00 p.m, her visit will be sometime in the early afternoon. Her Royal Highness will be at the museum for 45 minutes. The volunteers will be presented to her, bows and curtsies have been practised all week, and then Princess Alexandra will be presented with flowers and gifts to remind her of her visit. A brass plaque will be unveiled to commemorate the visit.

The museum will be open all day as normal with the gates opening at 10 a.m, and we hope to see as many of you as possible on this very special day. 

There will be lots of photos taken, some of which will be on this blog in due course, so that you can see how the visit went.
