Presentation for Out Line Plan for Bamford Museum
We would like to fill the museum with anything that Bamfords Ltd made, like Horse Rakes, mowers, Hay makers, Bales, Hay loaders; those are some of the large machinery, then we have mills, Cake breakers, Horse gears, Engines, Water pumps, Taps, Photos and the list goes on and the records for dating engines, we have had machinery offer to us but we have had to turn it down because we have no room for the big machinery, all machinery would be a static display but would hope to have an area to run some machines and engines as a display of how they would have worked.
We would like a corner some where to sit and have a cup of tea and an office and we hope that all of this will be done by volunteers.
We would like to have a work shop so that anyone with any spare time, and would like to volunteer to help restore the machinery up would be welcome.
We would like it to be accessible for disabled and if we had to put a tea room up stair we would be looking at some way of getting disabled people up by a stair lift, this area would be a place where people of all generations could come and sit and have a talk and tell stories and reminisce of their time at Bamfords Ltd if they worked there.
We think that this would be an attraction to all who visit Uttoxeter and keep the history of Uttoxeter alive as well as Bamfords Ltd, and we would be looking at doing guided tours and a talk of Machinery to Schools and any group parties, we could also do a talk with a projector show of the history of Bamfords Ltd.
We also may have to do alterations to the building which will have a cost.
We would make an entry fee.
We would be looking for sponsors.
We would be looking at grants and any funding that is going.
We would have to do a running cost of how much it will cost each month so that we know how much we have to raise each month.
The bills will be electric, gas, rates, water, and telephone
This his where we would like any help in any way or form and guidance which will help as to get this museum up and running, but any help on the costing would be appreciated and of the most help to us.
I have had a letting fee of £30 000 per annum which is £577-00 per week or £2500 per month so I have asked how much it will be if it was for sale and the agent is Daniel Hulme is going to ask the owner if it is for sale, the property we are looking at is the Hot Spot old building in Uttoxeter.
It would be more cost effective to buy a property in the long run than to rent one.
We also have asked about a building on the corner of Balance street and pinfold street which is owned by JCB, but at this time JCB do not know what is going to happen to this building as plans and the development is still up in the air
