We also want to express our thanks and gratitude to the large vehicle specialist and valued friend, Clive Sweeting, from Pro-Truck Services, who has shown overwhelming support for our project. He has spent considerable time on servicing our Army Truck, in all weathers and at considerable inconvenience to himself. All this so that children are not let down by us not being able to keep the truck on the road. You can find Clive’s details by clicking on his card, right.

We were thrilled and genuinely touched to receive a signed photograph and letter from Dame Vera Lynn, giving her full endorsement of our past work in educating children about life during WW2 and for the current Living History Museum we are in the process of building in Freiston. We had written to her previously, inviting her to look at our past work educating children, supporting charities and the new direction we are heading with a static museum. Click either image, below to read her letter.

We have finally finished the construction of our fantastic static Museum at Freiston Shore!.

This has all been made possible by the use of land from local farmer, Janet Bland, who  had witnessed our work at the site 5 years ago and was determined that this site be used to continue to educate children of all ages about local wartime history.

Through our enthusiasm and determination, and the fantastic support of local MP Matt Warman, with outer-County support from Nottinghamshire MP, John Mann, the Treasury have granted the funds to enable us to fulfill our dream with the static Museum project. Other support has come from Nottinghamshire Royal British Legion, the British Evacuee Association, Nottinghamshire Rotary Club and many in and out-of-County schools.

The Chancellor of the Exchequer was made aware of this unique project and remarked on the dedication and achievements we have demonstrated, along with his belief in the importance of children’s education, which contributed to his decision to help fund the project.

We are not able to take any more bookings for our Mobile Museum, but schools, organisations and the general public will be invited to visit the Museum, where you will experience an enhanced Living History experience. Schools and other organisations will be able to book dedicated time for the hands-on teaching events, ensuring the safety of pupils on site.

Please bear in mind the information contained within this site relates to our Mobile Museum project - a completely new website will be launched in the next few days. We’ll keep this site open until March 2018, so the vast picture galleries, testimonials and other content can continue to be accessed for now.

As already mentioned, check out our Facebook pages for the most up-to-date information.


       Museum open!

We are excited to announce that our new static Museum is now open to the public! We held a VIP Opening Event on 11th August, during which we were featured on BBC news. Check out our Facebook pages for the televised feature and for the latest pictures.

Our Museum is open to the public 10:00am to 16:00pm, Friday-Sunday and will be offering private teaching events to schools and other organisations on three separate days, mid-week.

This means we will still be able to offer our unique and critically acclaimed teaching experience to children, in a safe and secure environment, as well as display our vast collection of WW1 and WW2 artefacts to all.

Previously we took our collection on the road to many schools and organisations across England. Now we are located at a newly built, state of the art, static Museum located adjacent to a series of WW2 coastal defences, which form part of the teaching and overall Museum experience.  

We will be updating our Facebook pages with the very latest content, so keep checking in!

Come and visit us, you won’t be disappointed!


New look website launching soon!

Our new-look website will soon be launched, to compliment the opening of our new static Museum.  The current website will be accessible until March 2018. We hope you’ll like the new design!
