Friends of the Museum
The Friends of the East Surrey Museum provide
support through their subscriptions and, if they can spare the time, by
volunteering to help with the day to day running of the museum. They keep in
touch by means of a Newsletter which comes out three times a
year, and they may vote at the museum's Annual General Meetings.The subscription is
just £10 a year: cash, cheque, or by standing order. Paying your
subscription by standing order makes life easier for all of us. It gives us
a guaranteed income without the need for reminders, which are costly and
Membership application and standing order forms are

The museum is wholly run by volunteers, including the
curator and deputy curator. 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. 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.
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.
