British Surfing museum finds new home

Pete Robinson has put in heaps of hard graft over the years pulling together the collection for and setting up the British surfing museum which was situated on Brighton Seafront and included UK tours and exhibitions. The museum has now found a new home...heres the press release below:

"The great news is that we have now submitted a planning application to North Devon District Council to establish our Museum of British Surfing History in a 6,000 square foot building (see attached) in the 'surf hub' of Braunton - we will hear if we've been successful in early August, but this a major step forward.

The hard work starts now to raise the money to design and build the interior to make it a modern visitor and event-based attraction. A bid for early stage funding is in, and we are aiming to engage professional help in the near future to make our museum project sustainable. In tandem with this we are now putting together the application for the museum to become a charity instead of a non-profit limited company, which will open up more funding sources.

Lots of businesses and individuals have come forward with offers of help, and when things start to happen we'll make sure you get a public thank you via our newsletters, website and Facebook group... but there is still a lot to be done, so if you're interested in getting involved please get in touch."
