Join the Friends
The Museum was founded in 1984 with the aim of ‘preserving the past and the present for the future. We provide a focus for collecting and conserving information about the local area and a resource base for local studies.
The Museum is independent and self sufficient and was granted full Accreditation Status by the Museum and Libraries Association in 2008 and complies with all the criteria for good governance.
The Friends of Tom Brown’s School Museum help the Curator run the museum. We would not be able to maintain the Museum nor open it to the public without the help and support of our Friends.
We are all volunteers, there are no paid staff.
You can help in one of the following ways
- Joining the rota for duty in the Museum when it is open, for one or two sessions a year. No specialist knowledge is needed.
- Helping to maintain the artefacts and archives
- Paying an annual subscription of £5.00 a year
- Paying a life subscription of £50.00
Whichever you choose you will receive three Newsletters a year and invitations to talks and special events, and you will be helping to support a unique local resource.
