Museum volunteers recognised at tea party

A celebration tea party has been held for the volunteers of Saffron Walden Museum.

The museum has 50 volunteers who give over 2,500 hours of their valuable time to help the museum through the year. They help to fulfil a number of different roles such as running the welcome desk, sorting and cataloguing collections, helping to run the popular learning activities, doing verge surveys in the district and helping out with gardening in the grounds.

The "thank you" tea party was held as part of Volunteers' Week, which annually runs nationwide, in the first week of June.

Jenny Oxley, the museum's Interim Curator, said: "Our volunteers are a very dedicated bunch - without their support and commitment the museum simply could not operate. We are delighted to celebrate and thank them for their terrific support."

The museum is always looking for new volunteers to join the team on a regular basis or to provide ad-hoc cover. To find out more, visit the museum website at, call 01799 510333 or email
