Technology marketing firm voices support for aviation museum


Content Communications, specialist in technology communications, welcomes news that The Bristol Aero Collection Trust has been awarded £243,600 of lottery funding in its bid to create a permanent home for Concorde.

Concorde has been left uncovered at the recently-closed airfield in Filton since it made its final supersonic flight in 2003. The Trust wants to use the abandoned site to build an aviation museum to ensure all of Filton’s history of advanced aeronautical development, including the celebrated aeroplane, is preserved for future generations.

The Trust needs to raise £13m, but this lottery funding will help them apply for further grants to reach their target. Content Communications, a Bristol-based B2B marketing company, is excited to see this project succeed, in order to showcase Bristol’s pioneering advancements in engineering.

Joanna Watchman, Managing Director of the green-tech marketing firm, Content Coms, says: “Bristol has a reputation as a centre for engineering excellence – past and present. This museum will help us recognise and be proud of the city’s phenomenal achievements.”

She adds: “We will support their campaign to raise the remaining funds in any way we can.”
