!Volunteer with us
Make new friends, work in an amazing historic building and help a great cause - three fantastic reasons to volunteer with the Old House Museum!

With a huge range of roles on offer, there's something for everyone and you can commit to as much or as little as you'd like. All our volunteers receive a full induction so that you are confident and happy in your role. 

We keep in touch with our volunteers through regular newsletters and emails. Social events are organised twice a year - at the beginning and end of each season - to say thank you for all our volunteers' hard work!

For a full range of roles, please see below. If you would like to learn more about volunteering at the Old House Museum, ring Anita Spencer on 01629 813 642 for an informal chat, and find out how you could help.
