The museum is wholly run by volunteers, including the curator, most of whom are also members of the 'Friends of East Surrey Museum'. We are always in need new people to come and help. You do not need to have any special knowledge, skills, or previous experience, and you will always be partnered with a more experienced volunteer until you are more confident.
We need people to help with:
- Stewarding: To welcome the public and man the front desk and shop. This can sometimes be busy, but is more often quiet. Stewards simply sign their name on a calendar sheet to do a morning (10.00 - 1.30) or afternoon (1.30 - 5.00) shift whenever it is convenient to them. There is no compulsion to follow a routine. Stewards are essential for keeping the museum open.
- Exhibitions: Helping with researching and mounting exhibitions.
We are a friendly bunch of people from all walks of life who enjoy bringing our local past to the present generation. You don't have to be at all academic to join in. If you think you might like to help, contact the museum for further details.
