    The Museum is currently struggling with a shortage of volunteer stewards to man the reception desk. No particular skills or knowledge are required, just a friendly disposition. If you might be able to spare a few hours a week to help keep the Museum open, please pop down to our coffee morning this Thursday 25th April from 11am to 1pm ... See MoreSee Less

    I'm already down to steward at The Tudor House this summer, but I might be able to help out at the museum too, on an ad hoc basis. Would this be acceptable to you?

    I am very interested and have been in hospitality reception roles for over 12 years and lived in Weymouth 13 years.

    Definately not qualified 🀣 good luck. Very rewarding work

    Were about are you xxx

    This a Seward photograph from one of our collection of over 3,000 glass slides of which only 200 have been scanned.
    There is no doubt that this is at Overcombe as the chimneys of the Coastguard Cottages can be seen in the background.
    There is no year in our records but the Avro 504k in the picture would put it at around 1928. Interestingly our catalogue states that the call-sign is "G-EBLA" and there is a record of that plane being forced landed in the sea off on Weymouth 29 May 1928. However, if you look closely at the picture this plane clearly does not have that call-sign!

    A puzzle for Easter. This postcard of the "New Aerodrome Weymouth" is shown in our catalogue as "possibly Chickerell c1929". Elsewhere on the internet it is described as possibly Overcombe Corner. Can anyone identify the landscape in the picture? ... See MoreSee Less
