Another milestone reached! It’s been a long journey. 50 years in the planning.
5 years from Stable and Cottage to Museum. 35 years renting the buildings. 5 years to purchase the Freehold.
YOU helped save Exmouth Museum. YOU gave it a Future.
JOIN us now in working to make it a Success.
As of March 2021 we have finalised the purchase of the building! We would sincerely like to thank our marvellous donors and all those who contributed over the last two years. Every penny and pound in a collection box or spent on a raffle ticket has helped.
Our Trustees and Management Committee spent many long hours negotiating with our landlords for a good deal to buy the buildings and with the District and Town Councils to come up with a plan to pay for it. A combination of generous donations and a loan proved to be the way forward. However, this means that we need to fundraise more than ever to pay back the loan.
We always need volunteers for stewarding, both in the Museum and at events such as the Exmouth Festival; helping with museum maintenance – painting, cleaning, carpentry, moving exhibits; admin – publicity, records, research, queries, campaigns and fundraising.
If you can spare a couple of hours a week it could make all the difference. If you have experience fundraising and in particular applying for grants and Lottery Funding we would appreciate your help.
We welcome new people for posts on our Management Committee and as Trustees. Please get in touch if this could be you. If you have a bit of extra time we would be very grateful if you could join us.
