Abbey Pumping Station – ‘Seaside Special’ Day

12 Sep

We were invited to put on a small display at the APS ‘Seaside Special’ event. The event went extremely well and I encourage anyone who has never been to pay this museum a visit – it truly is a great day out for the whole family.

Our first attempt at a group display incorporated the internal bulkhead with lots of photographs and information sheets. We had a rolling slideshow on the computer screen to show our progress to date. We handed out lots of 'Tram 31' cards - even the Lord Mayor of Leicester took one with him. He promised us he'd put a link from his website to ours too!

We met lots of people who wished us well and one man even tipped us off on where we may find the remains of another Leicester Tram body! (More on that when we investigate further!!!)

A big thank you to all at Abbey Pumping Station, the LMTA Volunteers and the Museum staff, for making the day such a success and for allowing us a small table.
