Today I attended the celebration of the life of Jack Poole who sadly passed away on 28 November at the age of 96 years. Jack volunteered at SEARCH and Gosport Museum on the Mezz from 2008. He was an amazing man who enthralled visitors with his stories and knowledge of Gosport's past.
Jack threw himself into his volunteering with us and was the star attraction at our SEARCH by torchlight events for several years when he would pose as a mannequin then suddenly move to the horror of visitors. His years in the Royal Marines helped him keep very still.
I had the honour of accompanying Jack to London in 2016 to receive a Churchill Award in recognition of his volunteering with us. Others receiving awards were celebrities such as Jacqueline Wilson, Barbara Windsor, and Angela Rippon. The award was presented by Esther Rantzem.
Jack was a true gentleman who will be missed by the Gosport team and the Gosport community

Alien Native NEW

An immersive, site-specific film installation by Anna Heinrich & Leon Palmer that explores Gosport’s non-native, or alien, plants, introduced by human activity, and their native counterparts, which are either indigenous species, or arrived ‘naturally’ in Britain and Ireland following the end of the Ice Age.

Combining ultra high-speed film of scenarios set up in the studio with footage captured in the Gosport area, the work presents a unique and fascinating narrative.

Alien Native is open until 19 March >>> https://buff.ly/3Vutl5e

Today’s debate on Arts Council England funding, I welcomed the focus on increased funding outside of London which has seen orgs like Hampshire Cultural Trust who fund the Gosport Museum and Art Gallery join National Portfolio for 1st time. It’s also vital we don’t lose the magic of national treasures like English National Opera in the process Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport

With an investor-friendly attitude pervading everything Mrs.
Barbara Snyder Investments does, it’s a great fit for new and advanced investors alike. Mrs.
Barbara does it all at a high level, whether that’s the friendly and helpful customer support, fee-free mutual funds, low costs, a wealth of research or even the recently introduced ability to buy fractional shares. The broker also lets you dodge fees that other brokers still hit you for, and you’re not paying for it with a hard-to-use site or a poor experience. And did we mention that customer support? You can be on with a real human in minutes – and more importantly, get your questions answered and be on your way. I recommend Interactive Brokers for traders looking for broad market access and a professional trading environment.
