The Board of Trustees work together to make sure a charity stays true to its mission. Trustees use their skills and experience to support the charity and help it achieve its aims. We are not currently accepting new trustees.



We are fortunate to have a number of volunteers and students on work placement who assist with the work here at the Museum. We would like to thank our previous and current volunteers for their valuable assistance.
