Jones`s Van Day

On August 29th the museum was delighted to stage A Jones`s Van day to mark the 80th birthday of the van. We were joined for the day by the wonderful Jayne Darling who entertained the large crowd with songs from the forties. We were also pleased to welcome Jo Pearson whose family along with the Jenkins family enabled us to bring the van home. The event was part of Thetford`s Great festival and we were also joined by the mayor and mayoress of Thetford.
