Open Days and What’s New?

The FONFA Trustees have agreed a list of Museum Open Day dates for 2018. All Open Days are on Sundays from 10 am to 4 pm. More dates will be added as events are arranged. Light refreshments are available for visitors, inside the Museum, on Open Days.  Museum entry is either free, on production of your FONFA Membership card, or via a donation for non-Members of a Minimum £5 for adults and £2 for 10 -16 year olds (Entry is Free to ‘under 10s’). Service Veterans are admitted free, on production of their Service ID.                                                                            The £5 entitles visitors to FONFA Membership for the current calendar year (an unlimited number of visits on Open Days and other events) and regular Members’ Newsletters, if you wish to become a member.

The present list of dates is as follows:

January 18th – FONFA Members’ Evening at the Museum

March 18th  – Our First 2018 Public Open Day (Cancelled due to snow and ice)

April 15th – including the Classic Car Drive-in & Harley Davidson Day

June 17th – including a Museum visit by the Harley Davidson Riders

Please be aware that we are required by law to have two trained Fire Warden Trustees on site, whenever members of the public are admitted. The Trustees, who are all unpaid volunteers, are willing to consider requests from groups of ten or more adults, to visit the Museum on mutually agreed days. We will do their best to accommodate such requests, in addition to our normal Outreach Programme for visits by local school parties.

Future Change of Address & New Postcode: It may be next year before a correct Post Code is entered in all SatNav databases, so for SatNav users, the old postcode BH23 8AU is still appropriate for the Museum until further notice.  Enter the Heatherstone Grange Estate from Derritt Lane and turn immediately left, following the road round the estate as in the map below:
