It was the last curatorial session of the year (and the decade for that matter!) for our small team of volunteers on Saturday. We completed the last tasks for the the year, covering items to protect them during the coldest part of the season and clearing out a store ready for renovation early in the new year. Thank you to all the volunteers who have taken part in the activities at Metheringham Airfield Visitor Centre over this last year. Thank you to those who have spent their spare time with us including Stewards, the Dakota team, the researchers, digitisers, exhibition team, photographic team, web and social media team, catering volunteers, education and curatorial teams as well as all the FOMA’s trustees and patrons. Special thanks must go to all our visitors. The wonderful feedback you give us makes all our efforts worthwhile and we hope to see you again in 2020 when we will have some exciting new displays and events.
We are always looking for more volunteers to join our friendly and enthusiastic team. So if you have a few hours spare to spend with us each month in 2020 to help us preserve the memories of those who served at RAF Metheringham and in 106 Squadron, then please do contact us. As you can see some of us repaired to the recently re-opened Royal Oak in Martin for a well earned festive drink to finish the season. How appropriate that we should enjoy a Christmas tipple in the very pub frequented by so many 106 Squadron personnel in WW2. We wish you all a very happy Christmas and a happy New Year. See you in 2020.
