Hello Folks

It has been a while since I have posted here in the News section, but I have made sure to keep regular updates to other sections of the website. As you may be aware, I am trying to set up a Museum, dedicated to the former American Airfield. This is completely a solo project that I am trying to fit in with other aspects of daily life and work, I have been given the opportunity to use one of the former barracks huts on the old site 5, that was constructed to house employees of the Lockheed Overseas Corporation and later Military personnel. I have a varitey of ideas for the museum, all of which can be seen by going to the musuem section of the website on the naviagation bar. The project will rely on donations to get it up and going, but I am also going to use funds from my book sales of Wartime Langford Lodge to fund the musuem. At the moment, I am designing the exhibition boards, two are now completed, and will be in a 6 ft by 3 ft format, so nice and large, packed with photographs and text. I plan to have 20+ boards, but I have enough data to make around 30+ boards, which will be packed with information, enough to keep any patron happy upon walking in, as there will be plenty of large photographs and text to feast the eyes on.  I have also designed the entrance banner sign, which can be seen below. If you would like to sponsor an exhibition board please get in touch, upon completion, when the museum is ready to launch, I will make sure to credit everyone who helped make it all possible.   To print each one, including delivery costs is GBP £22.99p, USD $35.99, including postage, which is very very good for the size, this is in full colour.
