Dear Friend,

Spring is definitely on it’s way so I hope this is timely to be sending you the latest FMNH events programme and volunteer opportunity form. This is the first for 2012 and as usual I have tried to find something to suit everyone. If you do have any suggestions for future events please do let me know.

Our new website ( is now up and running. If you haven’t already done so please do have a look. We have added PayPal for those of you who would like to renew/join online with a credit card. Also we have a new initiative with the Post Office, which is working well, and enables you to use a credit card, cash or cheque to renew/join at any IOM Post Office counters. We also have a Facebook group if you would like to join.

Some of you will already know that we have recently added Cadw as a reciprocal partner. This is a very exciting new partnership which I hope you will all take advantage of when visiting Wales.

I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all the FMNH volunteers who have helped (FMNH and MNH) in so many ways in assisting with the many different tasks. We have achieved a huge amount in the last year, more than ever. It is very difficult to list all the work achieved but you know who you are and what you have helped with. Thank you again.

Lastly, as ever please let me know if you change your e-mail address. Also if you have an e-mail address but haven’t yet told us, we would love to hear from you.

If anyone has any feedback about FMNH I am always happy to listen.

By the time you receive this letter some of the MNH sites will be open for the new season. Please do use your FMNH cards and visit them. The new look heritage shops in particular have lots of Manx produced items. Don’t forget to use your cards to receive the 10% discount.

Many thanks for your continued support.

With best wishes
