A Successful Family Day

On Sunday 6 August, the Museum held a very successful ‘family fun day’ that attracted almost 1,300 visitors.

There was much on offer for the visitor including many activities for children. West Sussex Fire and Rescue Service supported the event with one of their fire engines for children to explore and Medi4 provided an ambulance for more exploring opportunities.

In the Museum’s classroom, the Education team set up 15 paper activities for the kids to enjoy and outside, miniature radio-controlled tanks were a big hit with everyone. Fortunately, the weather was perfect enabling a Supermarine Spitfire ‘flyby’ from the Boultbee Flight Academy based at nearby Goodwood airfield.

Throughout the day everyone was entertained by music from Angel Radio’s Pete Cross and those of a certain age were reintroduced to skiffle music from the Royal Air Force Association Bognor group.

We were extremely well supported by members of the local Air Training Corps Squadron (No 461 Chichester) who ran our small simulators, managed a radio controlled aircraft bombing challenge and impressed our visitors with parade ground drill.

A great day for all and particularly for our little visitors.
