Museum Awarded Queen’s Award For Voluntary Service

Buckingham Palace announced on Friday 2 June that the Tangmere Military Aviation Museum has been awarded the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service. The Museum, set up in 1982 to remember all those who served at RAF Tangmere, one of the RAF’s most famous fighter stations, has throughout its 35 year history been staffed entirely by volunteers and has become one of Britain’s most respected and successful aviation museums.

Group Captain David Baron OBE, Chairman of the Museum’s Trust, said on hearing the news, “I am delighted that the work and enthusiasm of our 150 volunteers at the Museum has been acknowledged by this prestigious award. We are all very proud of the Museum and its success could not have been achieved without the dedication and skills our all-volunteer workforce has brought to Tangmere over the years”.
