HOME OF THE LADY DENMAN - Local history isn't always about the big story - the everyday story of life in the early development of the region can be a fascinating, entertaining and educational journey.

Merry Christmas


It’s been an exciting 12 months at the museum,
The exhibitions have been well attended and with new staff and volunteers working along side and in co-operation with the longer serving volunteers and staff, lots of new and exciting ideas are being discussed and implemented with more to come in the new year.
One of the main objectives was to find ways of making the tourists and local become aware of what was once referred to as “Huskissons best kept secret”
This task has been assigned and taken up by the new marketing manager Clare, she has been hard at it and the results are being seen.
The shop has a new focus spearheaded by April and is looking better than ever,.
Grants to access, manage, record and clean the collection will be put to good use in the new year.
Awards have been won by the CMC and are well deserved.
The market days have been exciting and the family Fun Day was a great success.
All the volunteers need to be congratulated for doing the amazing job they do, the cleaning staff, the shop and office staff, the information centre staff, the reception staff always do a great job, the maintenance crew and market day volunteers, John in IT, where would we be without him, everyone contributes to this unique place called the Lady Denman Maritime Museum and makes it such an enjoyable place to be apart of.

On a personal note I have really enjoyed my time at the museum, I wish Id started earlier, the positive attitude and generous help you receive is very unique and I have never been involved with an organisation that has so much positive energy and I look forward to my involvement in the future.

On behalf of the staff and volunteers we wish everyone a safe and enjoyable Xmas and we will see you all again soon.
