Felixstowe Museum is officially accredited by the We’re Good to Go industry standard, given by VisitEngland to businesses that are following industry and Government COVID-19 guidance on cleanliness and social distancing, and have clear processes in place for our volunteers and staff to follow to protect us all.

In March, with funding assistance from local Councillors, we appointed Andy Calver as our first Manager and Curator to help progress the museum’s ambitious forward plan. Mr Calver, with his skills and experience, will be a great asset to the museum. His prime task was however to get the museum ready to safely welcome back our volunteers and the visiting public alike on May 30th.

 

The Suffolk Vehicle Enthusiasts Club showed some wonderful vehicles at their 2021 August meet in the museum grounds.  We always enjoy their annual visit – as do passers by!

 

In 2019 we are took part in a new visitor survey initiative, rolled out to museums in this region. Visitor Insight East is organised by SHARE in conjuction with the Norfolk Museums Service with funding from Arts Council England.  We had a great response from our visitors, gained valuable data and received very encouraging comments which have cheered our volunteers. We intend being involved in a pilot scheme in 2021 to assess visitor surveys online; this is again under the auspices of SHARE Museums East.
