SEAFORD MUSEUM SEEKS 20 NEW VOLUNTEERS

April 19th, 2018.


"We are now within a few weeks of the completion of our Improved Access Project," explains Kay Turvey, Seaford Museum Chairman, "and we need to recruit some more voluntary stewards to join our excellent existing team.


"The ramped floor at moat level, which houses most of the exhibits, is now complete. The new lift has been installed and is already proving to be a valuable asset. By the end of June, the new ramped footbridge should be finished, making the Martello Tower at Seaford the only such tower on the South Coast which is regularly open to the public and which has wheelchair access to the ground floor and moat levels.

"As a wholly voluntary museum we rely on volunteers to act as stewards when the museum is open to the public. Given the recent improvements, we expect many more visitors and therefore need to recruit more stewards.

"To give people an idea of what might be involved, we have arranged a volunteer recruitment event at Seaford Museum on Saturday the 28th of April, at 10.00am, when we'll explain what's involved.

"Potential volunteers don't have to be expert historians and we offer training. All new volunteers will get the opportunity to try out in the company of experienced stewards. Part of the joy of being a steward at Seaford Museum is the chance it offers to discover more about our fascinating building and local Seaford history, as well as meeting visitors, who often have their own interesting tales to tell. We just ask that stewards are willing to offer a minimum of a couple of hours a month, at times suitable to them, by signing up to our stewards' rota.

"If you would like to join us as a Voluntary Steward, come along on the 28th of April at 10.00am for a 10.30am start, to find out more. Or phone 01323 898222 and leave a message."
