FIFE FOLK MUSEUM - VOLUNTEER APPEAL

 

The ever popular Fife Folk Museum Ceres is appealing to those who have in the past or who would like in the future to take up a role as a volunteer.

Some of the tasks involve working with the public and some are "behind the scenes". For the Museum to be open to the public throughout the season from 1st April to 31st October, we rely on a team of active helpers. The main area where volunteers are needed is on the reception desk, greeting the visitors. Two volunteers are required on duty for each morning or afternoon session, Wednesday to Sunday 10.30 – 1.15 pm / 1.15 pm – 4.00 pm. Also, your ideas for future exhibitions would be greatly welcomed.

No special skills are needed to become a volunteer other than enthusiasm, reliability, an interest in the Museum and its exhibits and dealing with the public. Training is given on a variety of tasks to suit each volunteer.

Volunteering can add to your skills and experience, help you gain confidence, meet new people and give a feeling of satisfaction working as a team towards a common goal.

 

Volunteering can help you feel a part of something outside of your circle of friends and family and enable you to make a real difference to your community.

 

All COVID 19 precautions are in place to protect our volunteers and members of the public.

If you would be interested, please contact the Museum via www.fifefolkmuseum.org or telephone 01334 828180.
