Merry Christmas & Happy new year

What a year of ups and downs we have had!

  • Down came the old-coastguard tower that covered the magazine.
  • Down we dug to discover the footings of the barrack block.
  • Up has gone the number of volunteer joining us.
  • Up have gone the number of those following our Facebook page.
  • Our iPhone and Android apps have gone up on sale.
  • Up has gone our redesigned website.

Our very own Craig has made two videos – one summarising the whole year, and one of the last volunteer day of 2012.

What an enjoyable day it has been, mince pies, Christmas cake, and a touch of mulled wine – and a lot of work!

None of what we are doing could be done with out the support of our friends and volunteers. From all of us at Shoreham Fort:

Merry Christmas

and

Happy new year!

See you in 2013!

Volunteers

People are genuinely surprised when we tell them how few volunteers we have that come on site on a regular basis to help maintain and conserve the site for the enjoyment of the public. If you think you would like to get involved with this amazing project then please do get in touch or come down on one of our volunteer days. It may look like it's all hard, manual work but there really is a job for all.
