June Open Day

On Saturday, 10th June, 2017, we held our second Open Day of the year.¬† There was rain in the morning whilst some Members were strimming weeds and generally tidying the Dragline’s compound¬† but by the time the first people arrived it had become fine, although rather overcast. We welcomed around one hundred visitors, not only from the local area, including a professional photographer, our local PCSO, who often visits our site whilst out on patrol, and Leeds City Councillor James Lewis, but also from as far away as Wrexham. In addition to looking all around the Dragline, visitors enjoyed seeing working models demonstrating exactly how Draglines worked and were able to view archive films of this taking place at various locations. Souvenir mugs featuring “Oddball” were in demand, as were DVDs of the historic Dragline footage.
