Volunteers needed for 'Evacuee Experience' at the Nothe Fort

Published by Maria Greenwood at 8:02am 1st October 2019.

The Nothe Fort in Weymouth are looking for people to help run their World War 2 Evacuee programme.

Running through the academic year, volunteers will be working with primary school children, and acting out various scenarios to show what it was like being an evacuee in the 1940s.

Schools usually visit the fort between 10 am and 2 pm, with on hands activities taking place in the Fort’s World War 2 rooms; these include a shop, schoolroom, kitchen and canteen.

The children also experience what it would have been like in an air raid shelter during an air raid.
