The last Annual General Meeting of the Friends of Newport Ship was held on Saturday 5th October 2019.  The speaker for the opening session was Mike Belasus, curator of the Bremen Cog project, a vessel which is even earlier than our own.  Mike is an expert on Medieval wood and gave us a fascinating account of how the Bremen Cog was built and why it sank.

If you have the time and the inclination to join the Friends and stand as a committee member, we would be delighted to talk to you. We need expressions of interest before the end of August 2020.

The day to day management of the Friends of the Newport Ship is carried out by a Committee elected at each Annual General Meeting. The elected members of the Committee also constitute the Trustees of the charity. The Committee for 2018-19 is:
