Ganges Museum Needs You

HMS Ganges Museum is looking for volunteers to help man the museum and also behind the scenes helpers.

The Ganges Museum is a popular attraction based near Shotley Marina with folk visiting from all over the world.

Sadly, as members get older, there are fewer volunteers able to man the museum on weekends during the summer.

If you, or any of you family, have Ganges connections or are ex-military then please get in touch. We have former RAF personnel as well as those who served in the Royal Navy currently helping out.

The museum is also in need of an additional archivist to assits the current archivist and someone to help with the administration.

This could suit anyone living on the peninsula, although we do have volunteers who travel some distance to keep the museum running.

For more information or to volunteer please contact Roger Cushing on 01473 787238 or email the web editor at
