A company which provides day to day work on defence related projects and military sites across Hampshire and Wiltshire has increased its support to the military aviation museum at Middle Wallop by becoming a corporate partner.

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

Lucy Johnson, CEO at the museum said: “We are delighted that UK Power Networks Services has come on board as a corporate partner 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 teams into the museum. By becoming a corporate partner, UK Power Networks Services will also directly support vital work at the museum and will continue to aid the museum’s post pandemic recovery.”

UK Power Networks Services build and maintain electrical infrastructure for high profile businesses and organisations, serving clients in defence, airports, ports, rail operators, public sector developments, utilities, manufacturers, and logistics firms.

The Army Flying Museum is the only Museum in the world that tells the extraordinary story of British Army Flying.  As a corporate member, UK Power Networks Services will enjoy a range of fantastic benefits, allowing staff, clients and stakeholders to share a deep connection with the Museum and its community.  The Museum will offer brand acknowledgement, access and networking as well as discounted web stream, venue hire and staff benefits including free access for company team members and a staff tour from the Curator.

Rodney Booth, client delivery manager at UK Power Networks Services, said: “We are delighted to become a corporate partner with the Army Flying Museum. UK Power Networks Services has been working with the Army for many years, looking after their private electrical  network infrastructure across Wiltshire and Hampshire. We are very excited about this  opportunity to support the Army museum with their fantastic work and facilities which they are continually improving as a local charity. We look forward to building on the relationship and giving back to the local community.”
