Volunteers needed at Horsham Museum to help with extended opening

Horsham Museum & Art Gallery is looking to recruit as many as 20 new volunteers to take on various roles to support the Museum’s recently extended opening hours.

The Museum needs the new recruits to welcome visitors, put their horticultural skills to use in the garden and also to help with their increasing program of family activity events on weekends and school holidays.

Already, more than 60 volunteers give their spare time to help out at the Museum in a variety of roles from DIY and painting to cataloguing, administering the loans service and helping to run events.

Jonathan Turley, Volunteer & Business Co-ordinator at Horsham Museum and Art Gallery said:

"We are very lucky to have so many dedicated volunteers who support our work at the Museum and who have been instrumental in enabling us to reopen following the nationwide lockdowns. As we expand and are open more days each week, we need further help to host our welcome desk and greet visitors, as well as engaging with visitors and families by facilitating our family activity workshops.

While some volunteers attend the Museum regularly each week, others fit it in around their busy family and work schedules, so there is no minimum requirement for hours, other than fitting into our rota.

Horsham Museum & Art Gallery is open extended hours on bank holidays, including Sundays, with their first family activities planned for the extended Jubilee weekend, where visitors can enjoy having a go at making their own Jubilee crowns and windmills.

For further information on the volunteer roles available at the Museum, please visit the Volunteer Horsham District website or email museum@horsham.gov.uk.

Horsham Museum and Art Gallery is open every Tuesday to Saturday from 10am to 4pm, with free admission. Some charges are made for events and activities. Please see events page on the Museum website for full details.
