- To meet other people with similar interests.
- A chance to actively support the work Museum by becoming a volunteer.
In the past many of our members have played an important part in the day to day running of the Museum as volunteers. When the Museum reopens it will continue to be run by volunteers so your help will be invaluable and where necessary training will be given.
Members are insured whilst helping in the Museum.
Fund raising is an important part of the activities of the Friends. In order to purchase items such as materials for conservation, display equipment and support the purchase of items that may be of value to the Collection. In the past we have purchased computers, furniture and items for the museum’s collection.
As a Charity we can apply for grants and awards to benefit the Museum. A few years ago we obtained a grant to install the computer network in the museum.
