Friends of Gosport Museum LoGo

The Logo used above takes us back to the Newsletter of March 1991,
which I believe is the second one produced. The caption at the time was,
‘The new logo has been designed by James Davidson, Senior Designer
for the Hampshire County Museum Service’ so this is a flash-back to the
early days of the Friends of Gosport Museum.
Building was built as a Technical Library, used as a Grammar School then a museum, gallery and SEARCH Geology Gallery, and Local Studies Centre
The Gosport Museum was founded in 1975 to record all aspects of the history of Gosport from the earliest times to the present . It was housed, where the old Central Library had been and the Grammar School before that, (the building in the photograph above). The Friends of Gosport Museum was created around 1990. There will be more details oon another page in the future.
 
Membership of the Friends of Gosport Museum is open to all at a low subscription which will remain at £6 for individual member and £9 for a couple for both 2017/18 and 2018/19. You can just be a supporter or do as much as you wish such as volunteering to steward exhibitions, helping visitors and answering questions. They sometimes have events for schools and others to hear about the past. Some members talk about their time when younger to these groups. There is a committee you could join and one post has be vacant for a few years, Project Director, directing research and events.
