Nothe Fort Sub-Committee

Management at the Fort is evolving. More information may be found in the Membership Secretary’s Newsletter (Click HERE ).                                    

There’s lots more information about the Fort and the work of this committee on the                                    Nothe Fort Website


We currently have around 130 members, all of whom take an interest in the Civic affairs of our district, by supporting the activities of our various committees (above), participating in meetings and attending civic events.

Many members (and non-members) further enhance their enjoyment of our amazing civic environment by participation as volunteers at The Nothe Fort Museum.

As one of the  most important and interesting features of our local  built environment, the Fort Museum presents members with the opportunity to get to know and work alongside other like minded enthusiasts.


Many volunteering opportunities are listed on the Nothe Fort website including (at the time of writing) three interesting management roles -

- Director, Nothe Fort Trading Company
- Volunteer Chair Elect, Nothe Fort Sub Cttee
- Assistant Volunteer Liaison Officer

Full details may be found on the Fort website (Click HERE to go to the Fort Volunteer page).
