1988/9Bulletin / September 1988STAFF / Congratulations to our Director, Chris Zeuner, who, at the recent bi-annual conference of the European Association of Open Air Museums, was elected PRESIDENT of the Association, in success to Professor Claus Ahrens from West Germany.

On Friday 2nd September we said farewell to Doreen Andrews, and thanks to contributions from staff and many volunteers, were able to give her a very nice onyx and gold set of earrings and pendant, with which she was delighted.

We are pleased to welcome as the new Museum Secretary, Lynn Shaw. Lynn lives in Bognor and has been a teacher in the area. We hope she will enjoy working at the Museum.
1988/9Bulletin / September 1988HARVEST / This year's harvest was completed exceptionally quickly due to a good spell of weather. Two large stacks and one small one now await threshing, and as usual Bert Dibben is returning to the Museum with his tackle to do the work. Albert Peacock thatched in the ricks which provided extra interest for the public.
1988/9duplicated letter / September 1988(visit by HRH Princess Alexandra) / On 18th July the Museum was honoured by a visit by HRH PRINCESS ALEXANDRA. The event was a low-key visit, but a number of volunteers were able to be present. The Princess spent a long time at the Museum meeting members of staff and volunteers. We understand that she very much enjoyed her visit which was blessed by lovely weather.
1989/1Bulletin / January 1989(none) / A very happy New Year to everyone, and we look forward to an exciting 1989.
