We are looking for front of house volunteers to meet and greet visitors and serve teas, coffees etc and help in the museum shop – no knowledge of military history required, just a friendly countenance.
Anyone who feels they could help us and wants to get involved is welcome to approach us.
We have a broad range of other needs including collections/display work, digitisation work, maintenance work, cleaning, events management, finance roles etc.
We really do have a role for anyone!

Can you spare just 2 hours a week?
The Sheringham Society is looking for new volunteers to greet and interact with visitors to bring alive the historic Fisherman’s Heritage Centre and the unique Shell Fine Art Gallery on Westcliff in Sheringham.
The Fisherman’s Heritage Centre is dedicated to demonstrating the history of the lifeboats provided by the Upcher family of Sheringham Hall in the late nineteenth/ early part of this century and contains the historic Henry Ramey Upcher Lifeboat. The Shell Fine Art Gallery contains an amazing collection of nearly 200 shell-art creations, all the work of Peter Coke.
Over 25,000 visitors visited the Fisherman’s Heritage Centre and the Shell Fine Art Gallery last year. Visitors comments include: “Amazing; Unique collection, has to be seen; this a fabulous tribute to the lifeboat folk and their communities.”
The Fisherman’s Heritage Centre and Shell Gallery opens during Easter and then from May to the end of September, as well as during the autumn school half term holiday.
We are looking for people who could do a two hour slot a week, either between 12am and 2 pm, or between 2 to 4 pm. If you feel able to spare two hours once a week, or even to be available to fill in occasionally, please email Paula Chapman or call her on 01263 824338.

At the moment Watton doesn’t have a museum but our Associate Members Museum For Watton have been making great strides towards the development of a museum for the town.
Watton is steeped in history and it is important to value the past in order to value the future. Our children need roots and a sense of belonging – even if they don’t realise it yet! And a meeting place for the history of Watton would aid them in their understanding of how the town has developed and how we all make a contribution to that development, however small that be.Museum for Watton are looking for volunteers to help with fundraising and with staffing the new museum which will hopefully be opening Spring 2017.

As well as always looking for ‘dirty hands’ volunteers, we should be delighted to welcome some ‘clean hands’ volunteers too.
Would you like to help organise an event at the museum? We have various ideas for additional events that we just don’t have the time to arrange at present. You could take as much, or as little, responsibility as you feel comfortable with.
Do you have any time or ideas to help with promoting the museum in any way?
We would even appreciate help with organising car parking on busy days.

We’d love to hear from you
