The Museum Trust consists of nearly 200 members, many of them local residents, but quite a few from more distant parts of the UK. Members elect the Board of Directors and the Trustees and so provide that connection with the community which is essential for the Museum's ongoing success.
We rely heavily on volunteers for day-to-day running - welcoming visitors, providing information, etc. - and naturally most of our volunteers come from the membership ranks.
It's not all work, though. Members are invited to attend exhibition previews and other events organised for them. They have unlimited free access to the Museum and perhaps best of all, they have opportunites to enjoy the company of like-minded, friendly people.
Membership costs £8 per year or £12 for a couple - great value! Membership application forms can be downloaded here.
Members receive a quarterly newsletter which covers events at the Museum and provides in-depth articles on items of relevant interest. You can download some of our recent newsletters by clicking on the titles in the list below. (Newsletters are in PDF format, which is easily read on your computer if you have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed - most do. If you don't, you can get a free download by clicking HERE)
Our newsletters come in two versions. The basic version is intended for reading on your screen. However, if you want to print a copy on A4 paper, and you can handle double-sided printing, you can download the Print version. We hope you enjoy the read!
