Story

We are Paul and Linda owners of the We'll Meet Again museum for children. For the past seven years we have dedicated our time and resources to teaching children and adults all about the second world war, concentrating on the Home Front.

We initially started a mobile museum, taking our huge collection of WW2 memorabilia into schools and other venues, because we wanted to educate people of all ages about WW2. Our hands-on teaching approach was met with rave reviews and led us to receive an 'outstanding' award from Nottinghamshire Education Authority for the standard of our teaching and delivery.

The collection was also used for memory recognition for the elderly, with equal success.

Due to the phenomenal success of the mobile Museum, we have been able to build a static Museum, having had an area of land donated by a local farmer and an unprecedented grant from the Treasury. We have put into it all of our available resources but have come up short due to the project costs.

This Museum will house our whole collection, will be the venue for hands-on teaching of our visitors and will host charity events.

The Museum is superbly situated, adjoining existing WW2 coastal defences on the East coast of Lincolnshire. Theses defences were an important part of the local history and will form an important part of our teaching experience, supporting the ongoing heritage of the area.

However, although we have constructed the Cafe building, the funds are not sufficient for us to be able to buy a suitable kitchen nor the appliances in order for this to be opened to the public. The cafe will be an important feature of the Museum as it will help attract visitors from the adjacent RSPB Nature Reserve. These requested funds would enable us to complete the cafe.

We would just like to add that Dame Vera Lynn herself has personally endorsed our Museum project, which we were thrilled to receive.

Please help us to help benefit others.
