Town’s museum starts recruitment for new volunteers

The Museum in Newton Stewart is looking for a team of new volunteers.

The fresh recruits will help staff the desk during opening hours, and provide helpful information to visitors to enhance their experience.

Also, if they wish, they can help maintain and upkeep the Museum, during visiting hours quiet periods, with a little light cleaning, or weeding etc.

When the Museum is closed, a group of volunteers clean top to bottom and rearrange displays under the guidance of the head curator.

People can volunteer for one of (or a combination) of the following: welcoming visitors, stocktaking, cataloguing/research, cleaning and maintenance, gardening, outreach to the community.

They will be open Monday to Saturday, till the end of October, and occasional evenings.

If anyone is interested, they can email genefryatt@btinternet.com or call 01671 401048 for more details.
