A ‘Brief Encounter’ is expected at the reopening of Wimborne Model Town’s Tea Room on 26 April at 3.30pm.
The actress, Margaret James, who appeared behind the counter of the station buffet in the mid-1940s’ classic film of that name will be attending the official reopening. The tea room has been subject to a major refurbishment over the closed season thanks to grants from the Big Lottery, East Dorset and Wimborne Town Councils.
Greg Hoar, manager at the volunteer run charity attraction says, “We’re delighted to welcome Margaret James to join us in celebrating the results of all our hard work. We hope that locals and visitors alike will want to come and see what we have achieved and experience the updated facility for themselves.”
The Model Town is open every day between 10 and 5pm until 30 October.
