The clock is ticking ………. Bekonscot Model Village re-opens for the 2020 season on Saturday 15th February and our staff are busy with last minute preparations.
In the Workshops
Final bits of painting ensure that all the figures and models are looking their best. Some however are beyond repair and need to be replaced with newly created versions.
On the Railway
Running repairs on the rolling stock and completion of a major project to lay new electrical cables for Bekonscot Light Railway.
In the Ed Shed
New school workshops are being resourced and practiced ready for our first bookings after half term. Practical craft activities for Make and Take weekends are being tested.
In the Shop and Tearoom
The excitement of receiving new stock and loading it onto the shelves ready for customers and our favourite activity…… taste testing of new options for the tearoom including a new range of gluten free and vegan meals.
Around the Village
Signs of spring are bringing the gardens to life, new purchases are being tested and models are being put back in place. How on earth do the Model Makers remember where everything goes?!
