Thank you very much for helping to arrange this visit. The scouts had a great time, even despite the chill towards the end of the day. As you say, there is too much to cover in one day but they managed to go on board all the the ships, the submarine and also look into the Smithy and spent time looking at and climbing onto some of the RNLI boats in the main shed. What stood out for me, watching their total engagement was the rope walk and the lady that ran the session that had their attention entirely captured throughput the visit which, for a collection of 11-12 year olds is always impressive to see and I'd like to thank her particularly for the effort that she put into the Victorian character and the session. The scouts didn't notice the 'warm welcome' on the screens coming into the centre until the end but that really made their day as they left. Sometimes its the little details that make things complete.
a fab day enjoyed by everyone. Highlight, as always, was the rope tour. Thanks so much for arranging the parking and storage, which helped immensely. And no, there isn’t time to do everything: In three visits, I’ve still not managed it! Special thanks to the gentleman with walkie talkie for arranging our submarine tour on the spot. All the staff at the museum are friendly, approachable and helpful. They’re a credit to the Museum.
We did indeed enjoy our visit to Chatham. Not only was the Midwife tour excellent with our 'Midwife' guide most entertaining we also spent another 3 hours in the dockyard visiting the ships and submarine before going on the Ropery tour where the guide was fantastic. She portrayed the character of the spinner brilliantly. It was a shame that we could not stay longer but we had a 3 hour drive back to Nottinghamshire and as we had been away for 4 weeks we were anxious not to to be too late home.
