Recent and Current Activities

1. The major part of current work arises from the recent move from No. 4 Boathouse to the first floor of No. 10 Store, above the National Museum of the Royal Navy. The move to No. 10 has given the team a warm and habitable office and work is proceeding well.

2. Changes to Dockyard Apprentice Exhibition. Potential improvements are being discussed with the PNBPT and their consultants, Paragon. separately the SG will participate in a project to create a Walk-around Guide for the PHD Smartphone app.

3. BBC One Show TV programme. “Fame in a Frame” by Carol White has been filmed in the Dockyard featuring girl apprentices in the 1969 entry. Significant information and research was co-ordinated by John Regnard.

4. Racking. Obtained and now erected in No. 10 store. Removal of the Rate Book ledgers from No. 9 can now proceed.

5. New Computer. Hardware has been purchased and installed in No. 10 office.
