This week, National Historic Ships UK is launching the Shipshape Network Hub initiative!

Hubs are nominated organisations working in association with NHS-UK to act as local ambassadors in each of the Shipshape Network zones. They will champion vessel projects, build connections, host activities, and assist the sector to achieve more in the local area.

Follow NHS-UK on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram from 31st May - 5th June 2021 for the virtual launch of the first four Shipshape Hubs:

Monday 31st May_____Welcome to the Shipshape Network Hub Launch Week

Tuesday 1st June_____Shipshape North Hub Launch: Windermere Jetty Museum

Wednesday 2nd June_____Shipshape Scotland Hub Launch: Scottish Fisheries Museum

Thursday 3rd June_____Celebrating Shipshape Network projects

Friday 4th June_____Shipshape South West Hub Launch: SS Great Britain

Saturday 5th June_____Shipshape South West Hub Launch: Lynher River Barge

NHS-UK will be joining with each of the Hubs across their social media channels to highlight their projects and share how they can support heritage organisations, businesses and historic craft locally.

“The Scottish Fisheries Museum has a long association with National Historic Ships and has supported Shipshape from the start. Our involvement encompasses the era of Martin Heighton and Dr Robert Prescott who served NHSUK with distinction who promoted strong links to our museum. We are proud to be the hub for Shipshape Scotland and part of this UK-wide launch. We will endeavour to enable and encourage a diverse range of activity with maritime partners across Scotland.”

Simon Hayhow, Director of Development
