Volunteer Mike's first blog entry

Hello, I'm Mike, and I have volunteered to give practical help at The Regency Town House in Brunswick Square. I am retired and I have done electrical work in the past.

I have offered to help get the electrical lighting and power installed in the basement of number 13. It will all be done to a high specification and will be fully tested when all is done. When the main room is finished it will be used for training purposes.

From time to time returning visitors to the RTH (Regency Town House) look around themselves at the various rooms that are open to the public and ask, “But what do you actually DO here? This room doesn’t seem to have changed since last time we were here.” And it probably hasn’t.
