I volunteered to support the finance function of the museum in March 2012 after spending the previous nine months adapting to retirement, having spent the last 25 years working as a Finance Manager for an International Law Firm.
I felt I needed to give something back to the community and little did I realise how the role would develop. I am now Treasurer of the Museum after the previous volunteer left for family reasons.
The challenges have included introducing a purchase order system, producing quarterly accounts and monthly claims to the Heritage lottery fund. The rewards have been working with a great bunch of highly committed volunteers without whom the museum wouldn’t function.
I have been able to keep my brain active in an area enjoy and as my wife says it keeps me from under her feet. If you would like to help the museum in whatever role, please just fill in your details on the form below and someone will contact you..
