MARITIME MUSEUM    The Maritime Museum said farewell to Steve Couzens at the end of last Season due to work  commitments, leaving us to search for a new Curator. We are very pleased to say that David Horn has taken on the task and has managed to recruit a team to open The Low Lighthouse, Friday to Sunday, from 1st May from 11.00am to 3.00pm. The team consists of Alex Thompson, Andy  Fidgett, Rose Rosier and Claire Cassells.    Alex has made 5 new shutters for the outside and much of the rotten wood has been replaced with wooden cladding and much of the paintwork has been renewed. The Museum has been cleaned and polished by the whole team and was ready to open for 2 days over Easter. Over these two days, in spite of the cold weather over 100 visitors were welcomed by the new crew.   We have been fortunate to have two new models, an Edme barge and a Bomb Vessel loaned to us  by Tony Mobbs.                           All our Museums are now open:      The Redoubt - Every day - 10.00am to 4.00pm      Lifeboat Museum - Wed to Sun - 11.00am to 3.00pm      Maritime Museum - Fri, Sat & Sun - 11.00am to 3.00pm     Ha'penny Pier Visitor Centre - Every day - 10.00am to 5.00pm     Radar Tower - First Sunday of the month - 2pm to 4pm            MAYDAY MAYDAY MAYDAY  YOUR MARITIME MUSEUM NEEDS YOUR HELP  We have a small dedicated band of helpers, but we need more volunteers to open it on a regular  basis. The days we open are very successful, but we cannot open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the moment. If you could help on any of these three days, or any other day, between 11  a.m. and 3 p.m.`ish, please contact me on 01255 506306.    MAYDAY IS THE SPOKEN NAUTICAL AND AVIATION DISTRESS SIGNAL, AND DERIVES FROM THE FRENCH m`aidez, WHICH MEANS HELP ME. I THOUGHT OF  APPEALING IN MORSE CODE, BUT THAT WOULD SEND YOU DOTTY!!  MUST DASH.    m`aidez   David Horn, Curator Maritime Museum.
