The next three FONFA Museum Open Days in 2017 will be on Sundays, on 21st May and 28th May, and 11th June, from 10 am to 4 pm.
We now have new exhibits on display, including uniforms of RAF personnel who flew locally, a German propeller blade from a Messerschmitt Bf 110, shot down locally at the height of the Battle of Britain and a Merlin 24 aero engine, on loan from the Rolls-Royce Heritage Collection in Derby, with other artifacts, which have kindly been donated or are on loan to the Museum.
Local residents, interested visitors and holiday makers are all welcome. There is a small cafe facility in the Museum, so a cup of tea or coffee and light refreshments are always available, during Open Days. Going forward, the Trustees plan to open the Museum on at least one Sunday a month through the summer and, in addition, will be pleased to welcome interested groups of fifteen or more on other days, by prior arrangement, via the e-mail address email@example.com.
If you would like to join FONFA as a new member, please see the enrolment form under the headline ‘Join Us or Make a Donation’ above.
Now is the time for Members to renew their annual subscriptions (only £5 a year). We hope that as many FONFA Members as possible will volunteer to attend the Museum, to support the Trustees, on these Open Days.
