Three guides begin a shift at the Cottage
Our Volunteer Guides
develop a rota and staff the cottage for guided tours each opening day through the year. Training is provided and each new volunteer shadows a more experienced veteran for a few shifts before going solo.
Our Project Volunteers
develop research topics and themed presentations for cottage displays. They spend many enjoyable hours in the library and archives to seek out the interesting bits of history attached to various periods of Mrs Smith's life and the many artefacts held by the museum.
Our Event Volunteers
organise the various special events held each year from school visits and wash days to an annual Book Sale to raise funds to support the cottage.
Our Friends of Mrs Smith's Cottage
group is open to anyone who wishes to support the cottage whether you wish to volunteer for work assignments or not. The group organises social activities through the year for all members.
