The exhibition go off to a terrific start after the ribbon was cut by His Worshipfullness the Mayor of Redcar and Cleveland Cllr Ray Goddard. Over 600 visitors came on the first day and the following are some video interviews on the day.
It was so busy yesterday that it was hard to get pictures of the exhibits. Here are some taken this morning before visitors started to arrive.
Steve has promised to share a picture and some info with us each day. These will be part of a larger collection available in a book obtainable in the first instance from Kirkleatham Museum. This is copyright material please treat it accordingly
