We were extremely saddened by the death of Philip Hope-Cobbold in July this year, aged 76.
Philip was a great supporter of the Museum since its opening in 2004, when he was appointed President. As well as hosting several Museum events in the magnificent surroundings of Glemham Hall, Philip was actively engaged in all sorts of fundraising activities both for the Museum and many other local good causes.
Often known as “The Galloping Major”, Philip was a regular attendee at our monthly management meetings and could always be relied upon for a witty anecdote as well as his contribution to the smooth running of the Museum. His charm and engaging personality will be sorely missed by everyone who knew him.
Thank you to everyone who came to the Quiz night. Special thanks to those who donated a prize for the raffle, including ..
The Bell, Christies Care, Fisher Home Hardware, Get Stuffed, The George Farnham Gallery, HSBC Bank, Jeffrey and Associates Opticians, Sax Velo, Snape Maltings, The Store, Tesco.

The Museum held a quiz night on Saturday 4th February in the Market Hall.
16 teams of quizzers enjoyed a lively evening.
Thank you to everyone who came along and helped make it a very successfull evening.
Friends, supporters and stewards of Saxmundham Museum were entertained at a summer drinks party on Friday 15th July by Christine Hayward and her colleague Mickey, who performed some familiar background material on violin and cello, whilst guests enjoyed delicious canapés and refreshing summer drinks.
The event was put on to thank all the Museum’s helpers who give up their time so readily throughout the year.
