Spring is in the air and we are busy getting ready to open for a new Season. Volunteers from the Prince’s Trust were on site last week to help out.
In addition to giving the display areas a thorough spring cleaning, the team helped out with the ongoing building works by removing the old boundary fences and painting steel sections for the next Romney Shed.
Many thanks to the great team from the Prince’s Trust for all their hard work over two days.

The museum held its Annual General Meeting on the 16th of January. The meeting was very well attended despite the snowy weather, and members had an opportunity to look around the site and see the progress of the ongoing building works.
The meeting also featured a short presentation in honour of two of our long-serving volunteers, Chairman David Reid and Treasurer Jym Francey, who between them have clocked up 70 years of service to the museum.
The museum was featured recently in a piece on Border Life to commemorate the Battle of Britain Anniversary. ITV’s Sandy McCracken visited the museum and talked with the Curator, David Reid, about the stories behind some of the objects in the museum collection including the Loch Doon Spitfire.
