The newly restored Bath Chair at The Woodhall Spa Cottage Museum will be revealed on June 3, at 2.30pm.

The donkey drawn bath chair, similar to ones used by Thomas Wield, the original owner of the bungalow, which is now the museum, was given to the museum at its opening in 1987.

It was very badly burned in an arson attack on the museum in 2010 and has been restored over many hundreds of hours almost single handed by local volunteer Colin Skinner, assisted by Piotr Kalinowski and David Hill.
