The Newark Air Museum (NAM) is a registered charity and throughout and Since the second Covid-19 lockdown was introduced its been looking at ways of selling aviation kits and books, with the aim of raising vital funds for its charitable activities.
We have therefore decided to reintroduce the Order & Collect system like we did in the summer and this will start to operate on Saturday 14th November, 2020.
Like before we have taken some photographs of the key sections of the Museum Shop to try and provide an idea of what is in stock.
Copies of these can be requested via a page on the museum website http://www.newarkairmuseum.org/latest-news
The main product areas are listed as:
• Italeri Aircraft Kits
• Revell Aircraft Kits
• Airfix Aircraft Kits
• Airfix Quick-Builds
• Tamiya Aircraft Kits
• Assorted Aviation Books
• Modelling Paints & Accessories
Anyone deciding to make a purchase can ask for the items to be reserved for collection at a convenient time on the days that the Shop is open - purchases will need to be made by card payment over the telephone, or by cash when you come to collect the item(s).
We have completed a set of Covid-Secure Risk Assessments for the Collection Area in front part of the site and full details about this process are listed on the website. Social distancing measures will be in place and Covid-Secure procedures will be used and normal access routes to the Collection Area will be in operation i.e. off Drove Lane via the entrance next to the Motor Auction Site.
A queuing area will be set up outside in the car parking area; N.B. there will be NO access to the wider museum site, display buildings or cafe.
We appreciate that this is not a perfect solution, but it does act as a step towards reopening again and also it gives us a chance to fully evaluate how social distancing measures might need to be implemented in the Museum Shop when we try to open normally.
All profits from the Museum Shop are covenanted to the museum to help fund its on-going development; so rather than shopping online or elsewhere please pay us a visit soon and help support your aviation heritage!
