Latest news - Winter at the Yard


You might think that nothing will happen during the winter at Chedham's Yard, but you would be very wrong!


On Saturday December 15th we will be holding a Christmas event.  Even though the yard will be closed to the public for the rest of the winter, there will be the occasional group visit and a great deal of behind the scenes work going on.


The gardeners will be busy preparing the vegetable patch for spring sowing and planting: the visitor's centre will receive a spring clean and some touching up of the decorating; the café staff will be carrying out a stock take and ordering and preparing for the new season ahead. 


The upstairs storage area will be reorganised; and work on cleaning, labelling, photographing and cataloguing artefacts will be ongoing.  We still have some 40 boxes to organise, some of which are currently stored off-site.


The Trustees will review progress so far and plan for the future having learned a lot from the first year of operation.


More volunteers are always needed in a variety of roles and would be very welcome to join our enthusiastic band - contact Alexa or Marion on or call 01789 842770 for more information.
