Urgent appeal for more volunteers

Tiverton Museum is looking for enthusiastic and friendly people to join our volunteer team.

We are urgently looking for people to join our front of house team on Saturdays. Are you interested in working on the front desk welcoming visitors to the museum and Tourist Information Service, and selling items from the museum shop? This requires using a till, card machine and answering telephone enquiries.

The museumwill provide the training as long as you bring the passion and enthusiasm for Mid Devon and its history, playing a key role in helping visitors to enjoy their visit. As a registered charity, volunteers play a vital part, in both the front of house and behind the scenes at Tiverton Museum. Over 75 local people currently give their time to keep their local award winning museum running. The time that all of our volunteers give us equates to more than 6 full time members of staff per year!

Pippa Griffith, the museum’s Director says ‘The museum is totally dependent upon volunteers to deliver all of our different services. This is an urgent plea for more people to join our front desk team to keep the museum open on Saturdays which is a busy day for us, especially over the summer.’

If you are interested in volunteering please contact Carrie Thomas on 01884 256295 or email
