4 years ago The Ann Letitia Russell arrived back in Fleetwood after 39 years away from Fleetwood, back in 2015 there was lots of people helping us get our group up and running and our project off the ground, we had lots of promise of help and donations, but now in 2019 like lots of other important heritage projects in Fleetwood all the help and volunteers has dwindled away just leaving a handful of Volunteers to carry out
The current situation of the restoration is that we have now reached a point in where we cannot carry out much more work on her and only preserve her until we have got the funding in place for the restoration and also we have found her a permanent home and the funding is also in place for her permanent home.
We have now been let down by a local Business man that had promised a building to The Ann Letitia Russell Rescue Group to convert in to a Museum for The Ann Letitia Russell, and the building has now been sold by the owner. So now we must swich are focuse to looking for a new home for The Ann Letitia Russell where she can be restored ans displayed.
