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 the Friends' Newsletter which comes out three times a
year. The subscription is £10 a year. If you would like to join, please send
your subscription to The Hon. Treasurer, The East Surrey Museum, 1 Stafford
Road, Caterham, CR3 6JG, enclosing a note of your name, address, phone
number and email address. Paying your subscription by standing order makes
life easier for all of us. Please contact the museum for a form.
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. 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.
