The Chairman’s Challenge – Saturday 4th September

The start of the challenge at 6am

To celebrate the museum 21st anniversary and to raise much needed funds for the museum our Chairman, Stuart Duncan and fellow walkers, Debbie White, Becky and Nathan Buckell walked a 27 mile challenge across the district.

Places of interest were visited such as Parham House, John Galsworthy’s house in Bury, Amberley Castle, Pulborough Brooks and nine churches.

Back at the museum the walk were monitored through a series of “WhatsApp” messages of images where the walkers were, even a zoom call was made during the afternoon.

Over £1000 was raised to help the future of the museum and we are thankful or all the donations.

The finish just before 4pm

If you would still like to donate please go to our Just Giving page.

Thank You

APPEAL FOR VOLUNTEER STEWARDS

Can you spare just three hours a month?

Stewards are vital to the Museum and we need more volunteers to help ensure that when safe to do so, the Museum can be open to the public on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sunday mornings.

Stewards work in pairs and no specialised knowledge or skills are required.
