The Open House Day organized again this year in the Island’s Interpretation Centre on Saturday 20th September 2008 proved to be another success. Approximately 200 people visited the museum on that day.
The venue was very popular with people wishing to experience and understand the history of the Royal Small Arms Factory. One of the highlights of the day was the possibility of exploring the main focal point – the RSA Clock Tower. Amongst the many visitors were a number of previous employees of the Small Arms Factory, for whom this place brought back memories of their working life.
The event aimed to foster greater community spirit amongst visitors and residents of the Island and also provided them with a unique opportunity to step back in time and examine what made the Island a good place in which to live, work and play. The event will be repeated in September 2009.
