Become a volunteer!
Volunteering in your local community is a fantastic way to meet people and to support organisations that are run on volunteer power. Bangalow Heritage House is run almost entirely on the steam of volunteers, and we'd love to hear from you if you have the time and inclination to get involved in one of the following areas;
Gardening, Museum and Cafe. No experience necessary - come and join a great team full of community spirit!
Please complete the form below and let us know in which way you'd like to volunteer, and Trisha will get in touch.
We are always in need of volunteers, and there are a lot of rewarding tasks for you to undertake in the museum. We want our volunteers to feel they are playing an important role in maintaining the history of the region and value your opinion and assistance in all areas of the running of the museum.
Cleaning is an important part of maintaining the condition of all museum collections, and yes there is some dusting and general cleaning to undertake but if you want to become really involved with the conservation process we will provide training so that you will be able to clean objects and in some instances assist with repairs. If you are a sewer we can teach you how to mend clothing and textiles.
Research is another area where we can teach you how to retrieve the information needed about objects before entering them to our Collection Cataloguing software. Perhaps you might like to photograph the objects for our image database.
Exhibition set up is always time-consuming and volunteers with a flair for display are also needed.

If you are a "people person" you may like to help out in front-of-house in the cafe or when we hold events. If you have experience in a kitchen or as a barista you could become an integral part of the daily operation of the cafe.
