THE Norfolk Nelson Museum is looking for volunteers to supplement its team.

Friendly, motivated people are needed to help at reception and occasionally with other tasks. Training will be given and no experience or maritime knowledge is necessary.

There are many varied roles within the museum that volunteers can perform.

The most important role, which enables the museum to stay open, is that of reception cover.

Most volunteers come in for one or two half-days each week to ensure that reception runs smoothly.

This involves dealing with the public, using the till, answering the phone and dealing with inquiries and deliveries. This can be a varied and rewarding way of spending time while contributing to a worthwhile project in Yarmouth.

Volunteers are given regular training days, an end of season gathering and a Christmas 'do'.

Anyone interested in volunteering is asked to call the museum's learning and access officer Rosie Walker on 01493 850698.
