We just wanted to add a quick reminder about the car parking arrangements for tomorrows Aeroboot event, which looks set to be busy.

“Car parking for buyers – the car parking area on the old taxiway may be limited (due to work being carried out on a new fence); please drive along towards the museum entrance & into the Southfield where there will be plenty of parking available on the grass.”

Full event details in here!

Next week the museum and its appointed contractor will do the ‘Set-Out’ work for the first phase of the #ProjectPaniniMod development programme.

This work is not really exciting, or glamorous, as it involves the installation of a new waste treatment system and 90 metres of additional hardstanding on our Southfield Site. That said the work is absolutely vital for the museum’s ongoing development and also the comfort of our visitors.

The work is going to cost just over £150,000 and we’d like to make an upfront request for donations to help #GetUsBuilding

Project details can be found in here: http://www.newarkairmuseum.org/Southfie ... pment-news

... and donations can be made through this JustGiving page: https://www.justgiving.com/Howard-Heeley2

We hope that the Mods are OK with this appeal.

If people prefer not donate in such a way, you could always just pay us a visit as #EveryNAMVisitCounts

Footnote: To add a little clarity - the Southfield Site is 12 acres of land that the museum owns, hence why we are investing in improving its infrastructure. :smile:

Good visitor numbers accessing the Vulcan, Varsity today and also viewing the Viggen – great chance to finish the half-term open cockpits with access to another Avro tomorrow – Shackleton WR977!

Plus don't forget AVRO Saturday next month - places still available.

Please be aware of major traffic issues around Newark if you’re planning to visit today (or have to travel close by), this relates to the closure of the A46 bypass around the town – we’ll be open & we still have lots to see!

Another access alert for the visitors to the museum this weekend has been added in here – it relates to a Vintage Tractor event on the Showground

If you also check the link you’ll also see that the contractor is now on site and work is underway on the new effluent treatment system, which is part of our Project Panini Mod work.

We’re pleased to be able to report that for the next couple of days (Friday 2nd & Saturday 3rd December) we have cockpit openers in place to offer escorted visits into the cockpit of Vulcan XM594 – £1 per person extra on top of museum admission fee.

On both days we have a couple of small pre-booked going onto the aircraft but once these have taken place normal cockpit visit session will be in place – details in here.

Museum opening time 10am to 4pm (last museum admission 3pm) – it could be quite busy as we already have a few visitors stopping en route to and from the Lincoln Christmas Market.
