Lockdown continues

Another week begins and unfortunately we still remain closed. This is very frustrating for all of us at the Museum who have missed being able to engage with all our visitors and keep spreading the word about the RAPTC.

There is light at the end of the tunnel however; a new AAPTI course is due to begin in July and with some staff already having returned to work at the ASPT, it is hoped that museum staff can return full time in the next weeks.

After that, it will hopefully only be a short time before museum visitors are also allowed to return. We realise that it will take some time before many people feel comfortable in an indoor venue again, but measures will be in place to make things as safe as possible.

On a happier note, the Corps celebrates its 160th birthday in September and the Museum will be getting involved in the programme of celebratory events. First among these is an article and perhaps display about the 10 most significant things in the history of the Corps. These can be events, introduction of training programmes, anything that has made a significant impact to the RAPTC.

 It would be great to have some input on content, so please submit any ideas you have to the Curator via the links on the contact page. Hopefully together we can make this celebration the start of the new beginning for the Museum. .
