Getting Involved


We rely on the support of an amazing group of volunteers who support the organisation in a variety of ways – working on the museum collection, helping with events, and running the heritage centre.

If you’re looking to…

  • meet new people and learn new skills
  • give something back to the town
  • gain confidence or simply just have fun

…then we would love to hear from you.

We’d also like to hear from people who may be interested in joining us as a trustee.


However much you’d like to get involved – in the first instance, please email Jacqueline at:
