April Open Day

After some hard work by several of our Members, opening up and preparing the site, our first Open Day of the year took place on Saturday, 16th April, 2016.  This was attended by around ninety visitors who enjoyed looking around the Dragline, inside and outside and also watching the scale models operating in the Substation, with archive films of Draglines at work running in the background. Some visitors were relatively local, and some were from as far afield as Ipswich, Suffolk. One former Driver of Oddball arrived on his Vintage Tractor, which drew an appreciative audience.
