Voluntary Roles

St Leonard’s Tower: Front of House/Guides

We are looking for volunteers to join our team that help run the Clock Tower openings from May-September.

Opening hours are 10am-1pm, so you could expect to be on duty from about 9.45am-1.15pm.

Duties are quite similar to being on the museum front desk – it’s all about being a welcoming friendly face.

A key aspect of this role is to ensure that all visitors that are going upstairs sign the disclaimer form.

Full duties would be:

  • Assisting with locking and unlocking the tower
  • Assisting in bringing in and out signage
  • Greet the public and record numbers (sign the form if they are going upstairs)
  • Talk to visitors about the history of the Tower and the Town
  • Take money for the small selection of gift shop items we have available, or direct visitors to the museum to see the full gift shop selection

You would never be in the Tower alone, there will always be at least 2 volunteers.

The Tower will also be open selected Saturdays, dates to be confirmed.

Education Team Volunteers

Duties can include:

  • Developing activity sheets
  • Assisting with education and group visits
  • Option to assist at ‘out-of-hours’ events and visits
  • Helping with Toddler Tuesdays (term-time only)
  • Sharing the handling collection with groups – and receiving object handling training
  • Option to be DBS checked so that you can work with a wider range of visits
