The BNSS is a registered charity – donations and member subscriptions form our main source of income. This is vital in helping us to maintain our museum building and its collections, and to provide activities throughout the year for our members and our community. Join us and help support this unique local treasure, so it is enjoyed by all today, and for future generations.
