Planned Santa Specials and New Year’s Day 2021 Steam & Light Festival will go ahead as Government guidelines have decreed Suffolk to be in Tier 2 from 2nd December. The Middy is compliant with Tier 2 restrictions.

Obviously the MSLR trustees will keep these decisions under constant review. The museum will ensure that these decisions are documented on our website and on our social media.

It has been decided that the museum will immediately suspend all general volunteering activities until Wednesday 2nd December. A number of trustees and invited volunteers will visit the museum regularly for security purposes and to undertake essential work and maintenance. The trustees will continue to monitor the situation and advise volunteers of the plans to return to general volunteering closer to the end of this lockdown. Please do not visit the museum until invited to do so.

The MSLR Board strongly urges all volunteers and members to follow the advice and guidance of Public Heath England and the rules and legislation of the UK Government. Please remember that the Middy will still be here when this awful pandemic finally ends.
