Summer Opening Hours - By Ian Flint


Its been a Manic Spring, with so much on the go we have barely had time to catch our breath!

Now, 101 years after the formation of the RAF, we are about to embark on Summer opening, and a hugely important year for Stow Maries.

We have had some great successes in the last 12 months – grants, reviews and profile raising visits. Now, we need to drive forward.

On the site itself we are about to bring another of the buildings back into use – the previous Non-Commissioned Officers accommodation will find a new lease of life thanks to a brilliant grant from the European LEADER fund, and a HUGE amount of work from our volunteers.

Our shop and Mess have been redecorated, and the event season is already bursting with pre-bookings. Our membership scheme – The Propeller Club – will be on the website soon but is already available on-site, and proving very successful.

The exhibitions are back in full swing, and we are pushing hard for our museum accreditation application.

Did you know you can use the Mess and Shop without paying admission fee? Pop into the Shop and see us, grab a wristband and you’re away – Cakes are great, and the sandwiches will fill many a hungry Tum. Come and see us soon....
