With a limited number of paid staff, Forge Mill Museum relies on volunteers to help provide its range and quality of services.

Particularly on events days, when the site is visited by hundreds of people, the contribution of the Museum’s volunteer workforce is invaluable.

Volunteers also assist with the Group Visits (providing refreshments and delivering tours), Children’s Workshops and even costume making. Volunteers contribute as much or as little time as they can spare so there is no need to worry.

Volunteers are invited to attend a Coffee Morning on the first Wednesday of every month where they are able to meet with staff and other volunteers in a social setting and find out what is going on at the museum.

They also receive regular newsletters which keep those who can’t attend the Coffee Morning informed of what is happening.

So, if you’ve got a little spare time and would like to get more involved with the Museum, why not come along and join our friendly bunch of volunteers? You’ll be most welcome!
