New TWHF Member - Friends of Segedunum

Posted on Mar 07 2017

TWHF's newest member is the Friends of Segedunum - who will be involved in our conference at Wallsend Memorial Hall on Sat May 13th.

The Friends of Segedunum support and encourage interest in the site, museum and the distinctive history of Wallsend and do this in a number of ways :

  • We hold regular meetings and lectures at the museum that are open to the public.
  • Some members give guided tours of the fort and Wallsend.
  • Members assist in manning exhibitions, helping in the shop and cafe, meeting and greeting the public.
  • We have a gardening squad who help with the herb garden and general gardening on the site.
  • We have carried out research on behalf of the museum as part of the Wallquest project that led to the rediscovery of the original bathhouse at Wallsend which now forms part of the site of the museum. Some members have been very active in undertaking excavation work on site.
