A COMPANY which provides day-to-day work on defence-related projects and military sites across Hampshire and Wiltshire has confirmed its commitment to a military aviation museum in Test Valley.

UK Power Networks Services, experts in managing electricity infrastructure, began its support of the Army Flying Museum, in Middle Wallop, with a successful volunteer day at the venue in June 2022, when 50 volunteers from the company gave the museum a much-needed boost by undertaking a variety of gardening and maintenance work around the grounds.

Teams from the company have since returned to the museum to aid the team in maintaining the memorial garden for visitors to enjoy.

Museum chief executive Lucy Johnson said: “We are so pleased that UK Power Networks Services are continuing as one of the corporate partners at the Army Flying Museum. The museum represents a great opportunity to showcase the company’s work to our ever-expanding audience and we very much look forward to welcoming their staff with their families into the museum over the coming year. By pledging their support for the museum for another year, UK Power Networks Services will directly support vital work at the museum and ensure the charity can continue to develop its role in telling the history of Army aviation.”
