Members can be involved as little or as much as they want from paying the subscription and receiving the newsletter, to stewarding exhibitions, volunteering and being officers or on the Friends of Gosport Museum Committee, going to the British Association of Friends of Museums annual conferences.
In the past there were extra activities such as, trips, summer picnics, running projects, historical research and exhibitions. If the members numbers were to increase or members wanted it these could be brought back. Perhaps other ideas could be started. The Coffee Meetings only began around September 2007 and there has been a regular group each month of the year since then.
