Get Involved!

There are plenty of ways to get involved with your local museum. 

As we are a registered charity, volunteers play a vital role, both front of house and behind the scenes. Over 80 people currently give their time to keep the museum running. This equates to well over £100,000 added value to the work done at the museum in one year!

At the moment we are looking for volunteers who can help with the following:

  • Working with our Reminisence Therapy service taking out themed boxes to people livung in care or residential homes. Post holders will be CRB checked. Traning will be provided.
  • Working with our Education Department to help to deliver sessions to schools who visit the museum. Post holders will be CRB checked.
  • Working on the front desk welcoming visitors and selling items from our shop. This requires using a till (training provided).

We support all of our volunteers and offer training and guidance that is appropriate to every role.
