Would you like to join us?
Do you like to learn new skills and have the chance to use those you already have?
Would you like the satisfaction of helping to conserve our fascinating Victorian industrial workplace and at the same time help others to learn through playing with basic technology and to explore local social history?
If so, then come along and join in. We have an equal opportunities policy, so everyone is welcome.
Ask any of our members for a membership form, or just pop in on a Wednesday anytime or on a Thursday evening for a chat to see how we can help one another. Training will be given.
Some of the areas we need help with are:
Administration: help behind the scenes is always needed and could even be done from home.
Catering: volunteers are needed to run our riverside tea room during our Open Days.
Learning: Mums and Dads are needed to facilitate learning through play in our tinkering area.
Marketing: we need help to promote our activities.
Shop: we need help to manage and run our retail offering.
We would love to talk about how you could become part of our exciting future.
You can join as a ‘volunteer’ for a few months and see how you like us before deciding on whether to become a ‘member’ or merely support us financially as a ‘friend’. Or you can join up as a ‘member’ straight away as long as you accept our key membership expectation that you will do at least two stewarding roster duties each year.
