Skegness Church Farm museum saved by volunteers
A Lincolnshire museum that faced closure because of a fire and funding cuts has been saved by volunteers.
Church Farm Museum in Skegness, which is being rebranded as The Village - Church Farm, has reopened after being closed for several months.
The museum was taken over by a charity in December after Lincolnshire County Council cut its funding.
A new thatch roof has been installed on the main cottage after it was destroyed in a fire in October 2010.
Skegness town centre manager Stefan Krause said volunteers had stepped forward to help with gardening, painting and looking after the vintage farm vehicles.
The museum will have a working blacksmith, a medieval display and a tea shop.
