The Hampshire Naval Collection

To mark #veday #ve75 we have made a short film about the special Naval Collection - which is held here at the Discovery Centre.

The Naval Collection contains a substantial amount of material that reflects the strong links between Hampshire, particularly Gosport, and the Navy. Many of the books are available for loan.

It’s a few months until I get to perform at the discovery centre again - but why not watch my (Almost) live show on facebook this week? https://facebook.com/events/s/greg-chapman-almost-live-onlin/221643285849511/?ti=icl
Hello, is weighing clinic still on tomorrow? :)
Had a great two hours with you today building. Harry my son as you can see enjoying his time. Thankyou to your lovely friendly staff for a good few hours.
On Saturday we came to the science story session. Seth made his wolf proof house for the pigs. The blue is the water. The white is the rocks. The bottle is the rocket. The bottle has water trickling down. If the wolf makes it to the top the rocket blasts him to out a space. It survived the wolf test and couldn't be blown down. Both boys really enjoyed the science session, thank you very much ☺
Thank you for a wonderful Storymaker session today. My eldest had such fun creating his own “wolf proof” house
I took my three grandsons to the Can you survive the Stone Age session. They really enjoyed it and are very proud of their painted stones and shell necklaces! They especially enjoyed being able to touch all the exhibits.
How rude, came on the off chance to Gosport Discovery Centre today with my children to read/look at books (we have 4) only to find they have a few activities on now one of the activities is a story and for this incredible event you have to first put your name on the list and pay yes "pay" for the honour of a librarian to read a story to your children in a library. Now it's the cold shoulder of "if your name's not down your not coming in" I'm disgusted that you have to pay to hear a story what a great way to encourage you to visit a council run facility
Hi do you have spaces left for the Handas Surprise workshop today please?
On Thursday me and two friends attended craft club at Gosport Discovery centre with our children. We got talking to one of the staff and she mentioned that although their classes are free (they do so many - craft club, rhyme time, story time, construction club plus so much more) she said they rely on donations to help with supplies/resources etc. I’ve been taking my almost 3 year old to the library since he was born and it truly saved me in terms of anxiety, loneliness, boredom etc. Plus it’s instilled a love of books into my son. Anyway I never knew this so I thought I’d share! They have a little box on the desk on the children’s floor (and possibly elsewhere) and I just thought with the current cuts happening to our local libraries it would be amazing to support them in a small way. If we all donated a few pennies next time we go in im sure it would help! 😊
9 signed up Please keep promoting IMPORTANT POST ❗️ We were able to run the disability football due to funding given to us by Wave 105. Unfortunately, the funding has run out and currently we don’t have enough children on the team to cover our costs. We need another 2 children to join the team or we are going to have to stop the session all together. We REALLY don’t want to have to do this as the children that do attend LOVE it. Do you know anyone that has a child with ADHD or autism that would like to try a football team with Multisports included? If so, please email Nikki on: [email protected] or the email on the poster for more information. #adhd #autism #aspergers #disabilityawareness #disabilityfootball #multisports #wave105 #leedavis #coaching
Thank you for pirate bedtime stories last night. Kids thoroughly enjoyed the treasure hunt and craft; making parrots. Straight to bed with no complaints after!
