It is with very sad heart that we have had to cancel this year's Wartime Village event due to the current virus outbreak.
We would like to thank each and every one of our supporters who have helped out, displayed and come to visit us over the past 3 years.
As many of you know and understand; This will be a hard time for the museum, as the Wartime Village event is a major boost to our income to keep the museum up and running.
We hope you are all keeping yourselves and your families safe during these unprecedented times.
We WILL be back, We WILL keep fighting to keep the museum open for all when we come out of the other side of this virus epidemic.
We would ask that you all continue to support the Village museum when we reopen.
Karl, Rodney & Kellie
