Welcome to this June 2023 News Update Maritime
As the only national membership organisation for the maritime preservation sector, we support our members – individual ship owners and small voluntary groups – in caring for the UK's rich maritime heritage and building a strong future for historic vessels.

We look forward to bringing you news from our members, our special events and all things maritime heritage in the UK and beyond.
Please pass on to others in your organisation or project.

MHT AGM at Hermitage Community Moorings
23rd June at 2.30pm

As well as the formal AGM business (notice and papers as required by our CIO constitution, will be issued shortly) we will have an open discussion on priorities and challenges for the sector. This is your opportunity to tell us what is most important for your project and where we can help.
Hermitage Community Moorings Pierhouse is an excellent venue surrounded by heritage vessels on a purpose built pier.
It is not essential to book but it would be useful to know numbers and so, if you are intending to come, please email info@maritimeheritage.org.uk

Heritage Harbours

For over a year we have been working with National Historic Ships and Historic England to support the first national network of Heritage Harbours (including Heritage Inland Ports). These are places where maritime heritage, including working vessels, and supporting local infrastructure, buildings and environment, can be well displayed and supported by the local community.
Later this month we will be announcing the first national list of Heritage Harbour locations and featuring them on the new MHT website together with local links and supporting organisations. Some of this work has been made possible by funds raised by the OGA (Association for Gaff Rigged Sailing) in memory of the late Brian Corbett - former MHT Trustee and a great promoter of the Heritage Harbour concept. We hope other locations will join the network in the future. If you have any questions or are interested in knowing more about Heritage Harbours please see the joint NHS/EH/MHT statement and FAQs on the MHT website or contact us info@maritimeheritage.org.uk

MHT Website

Look out also for our new MHT website and new features which will be released alongside the Heritage Harbour pages as above.

European Maritime Heritage

 Major changes are underway at European Maritime Heritage of which MHT has been the UK National member for over 25 years. A new Board of the European organisation will be elected in September and membership will be open to a wide range of maritime heritage projects and groups. We will be organising a briefing on EMH for UK projects after the new Board has met. In the meantime if you would like to know more please get in touch.

Threats and opportunities, affecting our projects can always benefit from discussion and hearing how other people have tackled them.
Let us know your views.
