Anderson Shelter Project - Under Construction!
It's been a while since we broke cover and posted an update on the project, but that's not to say that work hasn't been continuing in the background to bring the project - kindly funded by you and your fellow Crowdfunders - to life!
In fact, today's update is to share some pretty major news - it's installation day!
As we write this, the frame and roof for the Anderson Shelter are being constructed down the hall from the existing Great War trench display, after arriving by trailer this morning.
By opening time tomorrow, we'll have a fully built Anderson Shelter for visitors to walk through - with the next stage being the addition of replica items to give the new air raid shelter the look of something that's really been used by families taking cover during the Blitz.
Plans are also under way to include further audio-visual interactives, similar to those in our permanent galleries, utilising our oral history collections so visitors can hear the stories of those who really used shelters like ours.
Once again thank you for your support - and watch this space for further updates as we continue to fit out the display!
