However, our Museum is 100% reliant on volunteers and as the majority of these fall into the classification of potentially vulnerable persons, the Trustees feel, unfortunately, that the Prickwillow Engine Museum will have to remain closed until at least the end of August 2020, and will continue to review the situation.
It is vital on opening that the Museum can adequately staff the important ‘front of house’ roles of reception desk and kitchen/tea shop, as well as undertaking the necessary high clean routines in critical areas, as directed by the Government, to keep visitors and volunteers safe.
If you are interested and able to fulfil these essential volunteer roles, supplementing the very few at present able to, or would like to help for a few hours a month in the future, then please contact us by email on firstname.lastname@example.org of 01353 720737 for more information. Any assistance will be most welcome as ‘a little by several is better than a lot by a few!’
Finally, if you would like to support the Museum in these difficult times, while we are trying to enhance the visitor experience for when we can open again, you can help by making a donation HERE.
A big thank you to all those who have supported us to date.
