Gloucestershire museum scoops royal award

Volunteers at the Jet Age Museum in Staverton have received a royal seal of approval in the form of an award.

The registered charity has been presented with The Queen's Award for Voluntary Service, created by The Queen in 2002 to mark the occasion of her Golden Jubilee.

It recognises excellence in voluntary activities carried out by groups in the community and is seen as the MBE for volunteer groups.

The museum was nominated for the accolade in 2016 and the independent Assessment Committee, chaired by Sir Martyn Lewis CBE, very much admired the work that the museum has done in the community in promoting and preserving the history of Gloucestershire's role in world aviation and providing an educational resource for the community.

The award, a signed certificate from the Queen and lapel badges for volunteers, will be formally presented at the museum by Lord Lieutenant of Gloucestershire, Dame Janet Trotter, this Thursday at a private event.

Chair of museum trustees, David Hunt said: "Our volunteers are the lifeblood of the organisation and to have their effort and achievement royally recognized is a wonderful accolade."

The Jet Age Museum is an all-volunteer charity museum at Meteor Business Park dedicated to the preservation of Gloucestershire's aviation heritage.
