2017 Membership Renewal

Mar 17 2017 News >> Latest News

Note from The Secretary :

Dear Friend of Discovery Museum.

I hope you are well and in good spirits. I am also hoping that you will again support FODMs by renewing your membership.

Your subscription coupled with the ingenuity and practical skills of the FODMs team has enabled us to repair a number of highly popular and educational exhibits. These have included the; "spectacularly large plasma globe", “Power to the People” interactive and the highly popular and entertaining “Shadow Wall” exhibit.

In the current financial climate these are repairs that the museum would simply not be able to afford.

This year we are looking, with your help to get more of the working exhibits back in action. These will include a small gas engine that needs a new drive motor and the Armstrong car display turntable that now needs a new motor and gearbox. Our work will also include helping to stage the annual Northumberland Young Engineer, Designer,Technologist Competition which showcases the project work of G.C.S.E and A Level students in the North East.

Please see our website for more information about our activities

The membership fee for 2017 is unchanged at £15. This can be paid by any of the following:
