UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT
At our Annual General Meeting on 27 April
Chris Medlock resigned as Chairperson to concentrate on her new role as Chair of Trustees of Sussex Archaeological Society. Pam Crowe has now taken over. Otherwise the committee remains unchanged from last year (see our page 'About Us'.)
Our latest newsletter on the Newsletters page includes a talk by Dr Beccy Scott of the British Museum: "Neanderthals of the Western English Channel"; the Curator's revelation of the Fishbourne Rabbit; and,for those who could not attend,
a report on our Annual General Meeting.
Fishbourne Roman Palace is a subsidiary of Sussex Archaeological Society, which receives no public funding to help with the upkeep of its various sites. Our Constitution provides for the Friends to raise funds specifically to help the Palace purchase equipment or fund activities which would otherwise be beyond its budget. Friends also give their time to help on site, either regularly or at special events such as children's activities.
On our Projects page you can see some of the ways we have been able to help. Even if you cannot take part in Palace activities your membership subscription or donation provides valuable support.
The website of the Roman Palace itself can be found at www.sussexpast.co.uk
