Tenby Museum and Art Gallery recently appointed Glyn Harris as its Community Heritage Officer, a position funded by the Enhancing Pembrokeshire Scheme.
As part of his duties, Glyn will be looking at expanding the museum’s volunteer workforce.
Glyn said: “Volunteering at our museum and art gallery would be a rich and rewarding experience.
“You will meet and engage with visitors from all walks of life, and get hands on with our catalogue of historical artifacts and archive.
“Currently the museum is involved in a comprehensive reorganization of the stores and volunteers are relishing the opportunity to handle the artifacts, learning stories of the town and helping to both keep the stores tidy and the objects safe for the future.
“It would be wonderful to find someone with numismatics knowledge as our collection of coins and medals is in a serious need for reorganization!
“Joining an already established team of volunteers would also be a great opportunity for making new connections, and building new friendships with like-minded individuals.”
The museum is the oldest independent museum in Wales and since it reopened to the public in September 2021 after and extended closure due to the pandemic, it has been operating on reduced hours.
“We rely heavily on volunteer experience and the help of our workforce is invaluable,” continued Glyn.
“We have many volunteering opportunities, ranging from front of house work where you get to meet and interact with our visitors and who are imperative in allowing the museum to stay open to the public, cataloguing, research, DIY and conservation.
“It’s a fabulous way of gaining experience, meeting new people and helping the museum become an even better resource for our community.
“It’s a great environment to work in and if you are interested in volunteering, please do get in touch with us. We would love to hear from you.”
