Visit By Canine Partners

November, 2017

Canine Partners is a charity which trains assistance dogs for adults with physical disabilities. Once selected for training, dogs are placed with volunteer ‘Puppy Parents’ who care for them full time from the age of 8 weeks to 15 months. During this period, puppies are taught basic obedience and socialising to instil confidence and prepare them for the wider world. At 15 months, the puppies move on to advance training.

On Tuesday, 31st October, we hosted a dozen puppies, accompanied by their ‘Parents’, to familiarise them with the particular sights and sounds of the Museum. This turned out to be a very worthwhile exercise for the dogs – and a fascinating additional attraction for our regular visitors! We look forward to it being repeated.

Talks by Tangmere

The Museum is pleased to be able to offer speakers to interested groups or societies on a range of subjects connected with the history of operations at RAF Tangmere and other military aviation subjects.

The presentations are usually given as an audio/visual presentation using the Museum's equipment. Our presentations can be tailored to suit audiences ranging from specialist societies to community based groups and range in length from 40 to 90 minutes depending on the subject matter.

Further details of the full range of presentations and the availability of speakers can be obtained by calling the museum on 01243 790090, by emailing your interest to director@tangmere-museum.org.uk or by letter marked for the attention of the Director.
