Make a Bequest
By including the museum in your will you can have a personal and lasting impact on the future of the museum and, as a registered charity, bequests to the museum are exempt from inheritance tax. When making a bequest we recommend you consult your solicitor to ensure your will is legally valid, reflects your intentions and is kept safe and up-to-date.
Museum volunteers staff the museum's reception and shop, greeting customers, serving on the till and provide visitors with information about the museum and the local area.
Volunteers also assist with special event days and activities as well as taking on other roles such as carpenter, dressmaker, gardener and researcher.
The museum holds a Christmas Party, a Spring Training Day and an End of Season get together for the volunteers each year. It is a great way to meet new people and support the local heritage!
If you are interested in volunteering, please contact the museum for a further details and an application form.
