Volunteer's Week Blog Post 5

I’ve been a volunteer at the museum since March last year. After retiring from work
at the end of January last year I felt I would like to do something which was
completely different to my working life and also hoped it would enable me to
meet new people. I haven’t been disappointed. A warm welcome is guaranteed from
the moment you walk through the door; the museum is such a friendly place and I
have also met some lovely people amongst the other volunteers too.

I mostly do general admin work when I’m there which utilises my word processing
skills, but I have also done such diverse tasks as decorating the Christmas
trees around the museum and helping with events such as 1940s Day and the
launch day for the opening of the new visitor centre, both of which involved
dressing up (something which I thought I wouldn’t enjoy, but discovered I
did!). A recent new thing for me has been serving in the new Tea Room, which
was something I never expected I would be doing.

I love working at the museum and I would encourage anyone to become a volunteer,
you never know what new skills it will lead to.
