2020 Season Announcement

17 August 2020

At our committee meeting on 16 August we made the difficult decision to remain closed to the public for the rest of the season because of COVID 19. 
Please email us if you have a research query or wish to donate.  It is possible to arrange an appointment for those who are relatives,  need to carry out historical research, or want to gift possible exhibits.
We will not be idle as we have a new exhibition hall, that requires fitting and decoration ready for you all to come and visit next year (hopefully)!

23 June 2020

We are trying to make a film about the British Resistance Organisation to play on a loop in our new mini cinema. We are wanting to use some MP4 films, plus clips from You Tube, as well as some still photos (PNG and JPG). We then have some text that a volunteer would read over the top.
