Lyme Regis Museum seeks new volunteers

LYME Regis Museum is looking for new volunteers ahead of its re-opening this summer.

Lyme Regis Museum building works

The museum will re-open in June 2017 following the construction of the Mary Anning Wing, its exciting new £1 million extension.

Museum director David Tucker said: We’re steaming ahead with the building of the new extension, and now it is time to focus on the people at the core of what we do – volunteers. 

"The museum simply can’t function without them, and we will need more when we reopen in June to carry out a wide range of exciting and interesting roles. 

"These include welcoming visitors to the museum, supporting our new shop, helping visitors to understand our collections and helping with events and activities. 

Volunteers need to be enthusiastic and well-motivated – and if this sounds like you, we would love to hear from you. 

"In return we can offer the chance to work in the town’s well-respected museum, meet new people and enjoy social events.”

If you are interested in volunteering for the museum, an event will be held on Thursday 26 January at 2pm in the Marine Theatre for existing and potential volunteers.

There will also be a chance to go into the building to have a look at the progress.

Potential volunteers will have a chance to meet members of staff and existing volunteers over a cup of tea and hear from Robert Battersby, the architect who has created the extended museum. 

If you are interested in attending, please telephone 01297 443370 or email David Tucker on director@lymeregismuseum.co.uk  Alternatively, potential volunteers are welcome to turn up on the day to discover more. 

If you can’t attend but would like to know more, please get in touch with the museum to have a chat about the opportunities available.
