The museum relies on volunteers as it has limited staff, and so we need help to keep us open and things running smoothly.

  • Front of House Volunteers – Tuesday, Wednesday, Saturday, and Bank Holidays

If you are friendly, and confident in meeting new people, then this is an ideal role for you. We need some new people to join the team to cover Front of House, assisting the staff.  This role involves chatting to visitors, helping to open and close the museum, assisting with enquiries, selling items from the museum shop via contactless payments, and generally ensuring that all our visitors have a great experience. The commitment is usually 1 day each 6 weeks, from 11am to 3 pm.  You do not need to have a vast knowledge of the regimental history as information sheets and training are provided.

  • Memorial Garden Volunteers

We currently have some very hard-working volunteers who keep the lawn mowed and the rose beds tidy and weeded. We would love to have some more green-fingered people on the team to help them. If you would like to garden but do not have your own space, then come along and help in ours.

  • Research Volunteers

We receive many inquiries from people trying to research their family history, and we are struggling to keep up with demand. If you are computer literate, and able to investigate a variety of sources, both online and in the archives, and think this sounds interesting, then do let us know.

If you are interested in any of these projects, please email the museum on stating which project you are interested in, and why. Thank you.

Work Experience – 2024

Unfortunately we are unable to take any more Work Experience placements in 2024 as we are at full capacity, except in September.

We can offer work experience for 1 or 2 weeks to A-Level or university students. The work experience will involve a range of tasks to show the operation of a small independent museum, and will cover collections work, exhibitions, research, administration and retail. As the museum is small, we can only take 1 student at a time.

Please email the museum on to inquire.
