Well done everyone involved! See you next year!
And we’ve posted some photos on Facebook from 2007 https://www.facebook.com/pg/fishermensmuseum/posts/
We will be remembering the loss of the fishing boat Pioneer and three crew on the 1st April 1949 on this the 70th anniversary of the tragedy. We have a two board exhibition in our extension covering the story.

Dennis needs help to be able to open on some Sundays – do you have a few hours to spare on a Sunday? If so please contact History House 01424 424744, firstname.lastname@example.org
Our opening hours are dependant on there being volunteers to staff. In cases of sickness we may have to close. The History House will be closed Sundays in Jan. & Feb but the worry is it will have to close for the foreseeable future Sundays… unless help can be found…
