IT RAINED on the Lawrence Museum's parade at the weekend, causing the Blacksmiths Day event to be postponed.

The new date has not yet been decided, but interested attendees are asked to keep an eye out for updates so they can save the date.

"Many people had been looking forward to coming to the museum to see the clever group of blacksmiths demonstrate their craft, but the rain meant that it was impossible for them to stage their display," publicity officer Vois Bancroft said.

"As it was, some of those who had planned to view the demonstration took the opportunity to look through the museum which is quite outstanding, and well worth a visit to Lawrence to see."

The museum is open each Tuesday from 9am-1pm and weekends from 1-4pm.

Inspections outside these hours can possibly be arranged for groups.

Phone 6647 7588 for any inquiries.
