In December 2018 the Museum re-located to a temporary home in Scunthorpe, due to this temporary situation we don’t have the ability to show off our displays in the manner we would like, therefore we are not fully open.
However the good news is we can offer Group visits to look around the vehicle storage area, these can be booked through phone or email. Alternatively pop along to Open Day’s throughout the year, listed below.
The museum must move out in december 2019 and is actively looking for a new home, if a home isn’t found our first goal is to place the vehicles and equipment into Dry storage, our second goal would be to find a new home to re-open to the public, you can help us achieve this by becoming a Standing Order Supporter, see below, we all thank you for your continued support.
STANDING ORDER SUPPORTER
Did you know that you can make a regular contribution to the Museum of RAF Firefighting by setting up a standing order payment direct from your bank account? You can pledge as little as £1.00 a month knowing that every penny we raise will go directly into supporting the museum and its activities. Our account details are as follows:-
Name of Bank: National Westminster
Name of account: Museum of RAF Firefighting
Account Number: 53037545
Sort Code: 60-13-15
Put your name down as the reference and that will allow us to recognise who is actually supporting us.
We are a registered charity (Charity number 1172939) and as such we can claim gift aid back from your donation if you are a UK tax payer. Simply let us have your name and address and we’ll do the rest.
We thank you in anticipation for your support. Without regular financial contributions the Museum will not be able to thrive and continue with its quest to become a nationally recognised visitor attraction specialising in telling the history of the RAF Fire & Rescue Service and Military Firefighting as a whole. This in turn will also help us to become a recognised educational hub that will enhance fire and safety awareness for all.
