Newark Volunteer Visit
Posted on by Anita O'Donovan
Recently, some of our volunteers went on a group trip to the National Civil War Centre – Newark Museum to see how other Museums are creating exciting experiences and telling their national story.
After a warm welcome from their welcome team, our volunteers had the amazing opportunity to have a tour of Newark, where they found out all about the history of the town and its significance as a Royalist stronghold during the English Civil War.
We even found a surprising link to our own story, with the Nottingham Building Society featuring the figure of Saint Barbara, who became the patron saint of those who worked with chemical explosives, including artillery-men, military engineers and, of course, miners!
Check out some of the pictures from the day!
