FRIENDS OF BRADING ROMAN VILLA

The Friends of Brading Roman Villa is one of two independent charities working together at this important heritage site. The Oglander Roman Trust (charity no. 1044506) looks after the conservation of the site, the buildings and the staff and The Friends of Brading Roman Villa (charity no. 1110720) help raise funds and provide volunteer help wherever it is needed.

Neither charity is supported except by its own efforts and in close co-operation each works tirelessly to maintain and conserve the Villa site.

The Wendy Gannon President’s Fund

The objectives of the Friends of Brading Roman Villa are to educate the public and to increase public awareness of the Villa site. Wendy Gannon, past President of the Friends, who sadly died in March 2017, was a major contributor to the life of Brading Roman Villa. She received a B.E.M for her work in fulfilling the charity’s aims and objectives.

In commemoration of Wendy, and to continue the work she started, the Board of Trustees has set up an education fund. The purpose of the fund is to offer educational grants, up to £200, to students resident on the Isle of Wight, who are undertaking higher education in History, Archaeology, or related subjects at sixth form, college, or university level. A Grants Committee (GC) has been set up to oversee the distribution of the Wendy Gannon President's fund, to vet applications, and to make recommendations to the Board regarding the awarding of grants to students, and the amounts involved.

Further details and an application form can be downloaded here.

The Friends volunteers play a significant role and provide time and skills in an increasing number of areas:

  • Museum guides and stewards
  • A specialist team of education guides
  • Maintenance of the Roman garden
  • Winter lectures given by visiting speakers
  • The handling collection of artefacts taken out into the community
  • Help with family activities and events on site

Less noticeable, but absolutely vital, is the behind-the-scenes volunteer activity which makes it all happen. Most of this can be done from home and extra help would be very welcome, particularly volunteers with admin and IT skills.

Whatever your contribution might be, your support will be valued and greatly appreciated.
