Free booklet available from Newark Air Museum

By Howard Heeley

Earlier this year a new 36 page A5 colour booklet entitled, “Aviation Memorials in Nottinghamshire” was printed and free copies can be obtained from the Newark Air Museum.

The booklet has been co-produced by the museum and the Nottinghamshire County Council, as part of the council’s Local Improvement Scheme grant programme. It provides an insight into the county’s diverse aviation heritage as represented by 40 aviation memorial sites in the county.

Copies have been distributed to most Tourist / Visitor Information Centres and Libraries across the county; and work is underway to widen those distribution outlets.

People can call in at the museum now to pick up a copy and as part of its commitment to the project the museum is willing to send off copies by post to people who request them. Such requests can be sent in via email to admin@newarkairmuseum.org or telephoned through on 01636 707170 (10.30am to 3.30pm daily).

Enquirers are asked to provide postal addresses if they are requesting the printed version or a valid email address if they would like the PDF version.

The museum trustees hope that many people will obtain copies of the booklet and that it helps them to see how in Nottinghamshire “We love to commemorate our aviation heritage.”
