Costume Change

We have enjoyed a busy and exciting week at South Somerset District Council’s Community Heritage Access Centre, near Yeovil.

One of the highlights this week was an impromptu visit from a local Scout Leader looking to book an evening tour for the Scout Group. He also explained his Father was in the car. His Father currently lives in France, but used to run a printing company in Yeovil. They enjoyed a 20 minute tour of the collection, before our own printing contact arrived with the final proof of the 2018 Yeovil Calendar.

Our volunteers have also helped us this week to check on aspects of the costume collection. Star items have featured a selection of purses of different designs, which clearly reflect a different age and style.

Best wishes to all for the Bank Holiday weekend.

Some of the recent highlights from the costume collection, repacked by our volunteers. Condition photographs were taken to monitor any problems and provide a reference point against which to measure any further deterioration.
