1990/8Bulletin / August 1990TRUSTEES' ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING - CHANGE IN OFFICERS / Mr Derek Bandey takes over as Honorary Treasurer from Mr Jimmy Woollings, who becomes Vice-Chairman.
1990/8Bulletin / August 1990(none) / This year sees a new direction in "Museum Publicity" - during August a television advertisement has been arranged which we hope will assist in lifting August numbers which have shown a slight decline over the last few years. TV advertising is expensive, and the advertisement is quite short. We will be surveying visitors' reactions in order to see if we can measure results. This survey work will be done by Gary Hodnett, who has previously spent time at the Museum on work experience from the Tourism Course at the College of Technology in Chichester.

Our Director has recently returned from two weeks in Russia, in his capacity as President of the Association of European Open Air Museums. We are looking forward to a presentation of the slides he took on his travels and a description of his experiences, in the Autumn.

The Museum recently welcomed a delegation of three members of open air museums in Estonia who were on a tour of the British Isles as guests of the Ulster Folk and Transport Museu \\
1990/6Bulletin / June 1990ADDITIONS TO OUR ARTIFACT COLLECTIONS / The Museum has acquired the contents of a cottage in East Dean belonging to the late Mr Dick Wilson. The contents of this cottage provide the Museum with a fine opportunity to furnish a 19th century house in the future. One possibility might be the furnishing of one of the cottages from Ashtead. The collection includes small items as well as furniture, but one of the most interesting parts of this collection is the game larder. This is a small building that stood behind the house which was occupied by a gamekeeper. It was used for temporary storage of pheasants and other game after a day's shooting in Charlton Forest. It is currently standing in the car park but will be moved to store shortly.
1990/6Bulletin / June 1990PETERSFIELD DRYING SHED / This building is now completed. Paul Russell and John Winterbottom should be congratulated on a fine job. The building is a significant addition to the site, particularly when viewed from Greenways Field or the bank by the Mill. Richard Harris is well advanced with plans for the Brick Exhibition. Redland Brick Company will be providing the materials for construction of exhibits.
