Fife Folk Museum Volunteer Appeal

If you have recently retired or moved to the area and you are looking for something meaningful to occupy your time why not consider becoming a volunteer at the Fife Folk Museum Ceres working either back of house helping to manage the extensive collection or on the reception desk greeting our many visitors.

Why 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.

From the 13th December we will be open from 11am to 3pm Wednesday to Sunday. We will review this in the new year and hope to be able to return to the original hours as soon as possible.

The Coffee Shop at FFM will close at 3pm on 23rd December and will reopen on Wednesday 10th January 2024.

All of your favourite home bakes, tasty soup and lunches continue to be available 😊
