Join our volunteers


The museum is always ready and waiting to welcome volunteers to help ensure that our mining heritage is not lost to future generations. We would not exist without the time generously given by our supporters.

Please get in touch if you are able to help in any aspects of the work we do. Ex miners with their knowledge and experience are invaluable in guiding visitors around the museum and bringing the artefacts to life with stories of how and what they were used for. We also need anyone with time to spare, who can help with the running of the museum, especially if you have social media skills, and welcoming our guests, as well as making craft gifts to be sold in our shop in order to raise funds for the museum.

Any time that you can give, however short, will be gratefully received.
